Yorkshire Red Kites – The Future.
For around 20 years YRK have been monitoring and recording red kite activities and have received literally thousands of sightings sent to the ‘Contact Us’ section of our website. We are extremely grateful to everyone who has taken the time to respond to our request for sightings. This has enabled us to accurately map the population spread of the kites from the initial release site at Harewood that were joined by visiting kites from as far afield as North Scotland and Wales.
We now feel that the red kite population in this county is in a very strong position, is growing and will sustain in the future.
Therefore, we feel there is no longer the need for close monitoring and have decided to request that we no longer wish to receive general sightings or images but would be grateful for any information regarding a possible new nest site.
Should you have any information regarding kite fatalities/injured or sick birds then details of how to deal with the situation can be found on our website by following the link: http://www.yorkshireredkites.net/important/guidelines-for-dealing-with-casualties
