Second batch of 30 Red Kites released in Cumbria this week.

The second batch of 30 Red kites filled the skies above Grizedale Forest in Cumbria yesterday as part of a landmark conservation project. The 30 birds were released by the Forestry Commission’s wildlife ranger Iain Yoxall after being brought to Cumbria as hatchlings from the commission’s breeding site in Rockingham Forest, Nottinghamshire.
