Weardley Red Kites


Andrea drove through Weardley earlier today and watched a Red Kite for a few minutes as it threw some shapes together. The Yorkshire Red Kite website is a great source of information about these birds. In terms of local sightings we've seen one fly over our house in Kirkstall, had a couple of sightings over the allotment and regular weekend sightings in the Spen Lane/ring road area.
