Out there, in the semi-wild, where man-made fades into half-lit forest – we found you! Or rather, you found us. We saw you soar. We heard you call. We heard the dogs of the warden’s house yap to ward you off from their master’s chickens. You never had a problem living with us, although we had a hard time living with you and your ilk. And Sparrowhawks, were you hiding there somewhere? Probably.
Although my children yearn to see Sea Eagles and Golden Eagles and want to explore the Highlands that hide them, for now Red Kites are still plenty amazing.
