A book telling the story of the reintroduction of red kites into the Chilterns area is being released next month.
When the Kite Builds: Why and How We Restored Red Kites Across Britain is written by former chairman of the Red Kite Project Team, Dr Mike Pienkowski. It details how the red kite went from a bird with a tiny population in Wales to one of the local area’s most well-known wildlife sights.
Dr Pienkowski said: “I am delighted to get this book out. It is important to put such successes on record – I hope in a readable way. This is both to help others and to recognise the teamwork of a huge number of people in UK and other countries.”
The book is set to be released on March 3 and can be pre-ordered here.
