Autumn

autumn

Autumn signals the start for red kites to come together in late afternoon for what is known as a ‘communal roost’. We’re aware of several roost sites but would welcome any information should anyone come across a roost that can contain high double numbers of kites.

Homepage quotes

"When the kyte builds, look to lesser linen"
From Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale

"Ah, could I see a spinney nigh,
A paddock riding in the sky,
Above the oaks, in easy sail,
On stilly wings and forked tail."
Paddock is an old English name for the Red Kite
By John Clare (c1820)
