Northern Ireland Red Kites

Over the past 200 years the Red Kite population in Britain and Ireland dwindled, largely due to human persecution, until only a small population remained in mid-Wales. Since 1989 a number of reintroduction projects have begun to restore the red kite to its former range across the UK.

Due to the momentum and experience gained from these sucessful reintroductions in England and Scotland, the stage was set for this large-scale species recovery project to be rolled out into Ireland in 2007.

As part of this project RSPB NI began a reintroduction in the South Down area in 2008 and Red Kite Officer, Adam McClure, will be giving an illustrated talk on the highs and lows of bringing these majestic birds of prey back to Northern Irish skies.

A charge of £5 will be payable at the door. This includes £2 for tea/coffee and traybakes, with the remainder going to Northern Ireland Red Kites.


doesn't give a start time but these talks are usually begin around 7pm?
think outside, no box required
