Harry Is Good With Numbers!
Eleven year old Harry Witts a junior member of the YWT together with his younger sister Ella is an active member of the Cottingham Wildlife Watch Group. On a recent visit to an East Yorkshire red kite roost with the CWWG Harry, and other group members spotted coming into roost one of the few red kites left in East Yorkshire to have retained it’s wing tags. Seeing a tagged kite always adds interest for everyone. So much so Harry decided to record the event by drawing the tagged bird. The bird identified as Orange/Red7 fledged from a nest at Harewood in 2003 turned up in East Yorkshire where it was first recorded nesting in 2005, and has remained ever since
