Although the Red Kite has been increasing its range for some time, the first proven nesting on the Gower Peninsula seemed long overdue, so it's satisfying to know that not only did they nest this year, but also that they have been successful in fledging two young. Hopefully A0 and A1 will be gracing Gower skies for years to come. If you should be lucky enough to see or photograph these or any other tagged birds please report your sighting. A big well done to Gwyn and his team for the many hours they put in locating and monitoring these birds all over Wales and beyond.
