Return of the Red Kite and the Peregrine Falcon
A talk by Keith Betton
Wednesday 8th November, 2017: 7pm
New Hall, Winchester College
The Red Kite is a fascinating and agile bird of prey with an amazing ability to steal food from other birds. The Peregrine is the fastest flying bird in the world, capable of reaching speeds in excess of 200 mph. There was a time when they were both extremely rare birds in Britain. Many were killed by hunters or poisoned but in recent years they have become more common - and are doing well in Hampshire.
Keith Betton has studied these fantastic birds in detail. He tells us about the return of both species - one with our help, and one on its own. This event is kindly hosted by Winchester College and we look forward to seeing you.
