The Red Kite

by Ian Carter

The Red Kite
£6.99 RRP: £25.00 Add to basket


In Britain the fortunes of the Red Kite have come almost full circle. From being one of the most widespread and familiar birds of prey to almost complete extinction as a result of persecution, they are now in the early stages of what is hoped will be a full recovery.

This book describes the history of the Red Kite and its long association with man. Explains why populations in many areas are now recovering and the serious threats they still face in parts of their range. There is a full review of their current status with chapters on diet and foraging, social behaviour, breeding ecology and movements.

Revised 2nd edition.
