Following the successful reintroduction of Red Kites into Yorkshire at Harewood, these magnificient birds can now be sighted on the Yorkshire Wolds.
On 'Walks with Underwood', where you see my 'Red Kite Country' logo, look out for these large birds soaring on the wind - easily identified by that characteristic forked tail.
