Friends of Red Kites

A very interesting and informative talk was given to members of the Trust and guests, after the AGM last Thursday. Harold Dobson from the Friends of Red Kites in the North East of England Group gave an excellent illustrated talk about this rare and most spectacular bird, which is often seen in the skies above the village.

Between 2004 & 2007 the Northern Kites Project re-introduced 94 red kites into the lower Derwent Valley where they continue to breed. The Friends Group was formed in 2009 to maintain interest and involvement in protecting and maintaining the red kite population in the valley.

Further information about the Group and how to become a member can be found on the Group’s website.
