Whilst the Red Kite may be prevalent in other parts of the country, it is a much rarer occurrence in this part of rural Cheshire.
These impressive birds of prey have been saved from near extinction by European Union Nature Directives. In some parts of the country they are now thriving, though not so in our area.
That said, 3 residents have now accurately recorded sightings of a Red Kite flying over Tattenhall and specifically in the area from the Burwardsley Road and across towards the new Flacca Wetland area.
We look forward to our first end of the month report by our newly appointed 'columnist' who will be reporting on bird sightings and movements in our area.
If other Tattenhallers spot the Red Kite then please contact the Webteam.
