Red Kites and Buzzards

A reintroduction program for Red Kites began in England and Scotland in 1989, with Yorkshire being the fifth area to see the birds released back into the wild, in 1999. Young birds that had been successfully reared in the Chiltern Hills in South East England were released at the Harewood Estate, and now there are tens of them living in our area. You are guaranteed to see them souring above you whilst you are with us.
