Plight of the red kite
(Source RSPB) This magnificently graceful bird of prey is unmistakable with its reddish-brown body, angled wings and deeply forked tail. It was saved from national extinction by one of the world’s longest-running protection programmes. It has now been successfully re-introduced to England and Scotland. Red kites are listed under Schedule 1 of The Wildlife and Countryside Act.
Located in the remote western area of the Brecon Beacons National Park is the Black Mountain Red Kite Feeding Station at Llanddeusant.
plight (noun) = a dangerous, difficult, or otherwise unfortunate situation.
