The Red Kite ( milvus milvus )
A most beautiful bird in my view. Not too long ago it was nearly wiped out due to poisoning and hunting by mis informed people but now, thanks to a great conservation effort, can be readily seen particularly in Wales and the Chiltern area of England. I get them regularly over my house in the Reading area.
A great success story.
This bird is a captive bird and can be seen at the Hawk Conservancy at Weyhill.
As ever many many thanks to all those who spared time for c/c's on the Grey Heron. I am most grateful.
