Late spring/early summer is possibly the quietest time for seeing red kites as they are busy raising any young. Once both the adults and young are ‘fed up’ there is generally very little activity of birds out on the wing.
We've created a sightings map from the data that you've sent to us this year.

All reports of Red Kite sightings received from the general public are welcome. They help us keep track of the expanding population, and a number of new breeding pairs having been located through such records.
