The Red Kite comeback in the UK
After a century of absence on the territory, the red kite thrives today in the United Kingdom. From the 18th to the 20th century, the species of raptor was the target of hunters and private collectors.

There are 6,000 breeding pairs in Great Britain, or about 15% of the world population. Photo credit: Mrs Airwolfhound
