Red Kites Come Home to Roost

I watched 20 to 30 red kites fly in to roost near Nunburnholme the other day. What a magnificent sight! One of the birds had a tag on it so I guess it must be one of the original one's released from Harewood House as part of the recent programme to bring this beautiful bird back from the brink of extinction.
It's heartening to think that so many of them have come to the Yorkshire Wolds. There was a time when I thought I would never see red kites here in my lifetime.
