Red Kites in Northern Ireland - talk by Adam McClure, RSPB NI Red Kite Officer

Over the past 200 years, Red Kite numbers in Britain and Ireland dwindled, largely due to human persecution.  Since 1989, a number of reintroduction projects have begun to restore the red kite to its former range across the UK.
Adam talks about how RSPB NI began a reintroduction in 2008 to bring these majestic birds of prey back to Northern Irish skies.
