Red Kite over Fall Bay, with Alveley in the background
Kite records received over the last 10 years (not comprehensive, but a good sample) indicate that although the number of individual kites visiting Gower has probably has not been great, the number of reported sightings has increased streadily. As Sian's observations suggest, birds have been seen regularly in south-western part of Gower, though they can be seen almost anywhere, including over the centre of Swansea.
