Members Meeting

What another great meeting we had on Wednesday 30th March. The speaker was from the Friends of the Red Kites. The talk he gave was informative, interesting and in parts funny. This is what he spoke about:

The Red Kite
The red kite is one of Britain’s rarest and most spectacular birds, especially at close quarters. Between 2004 and 2007 the Northern Kites Project re-introduced 94 red kites into the lower Derwent Valley.  This Project was unique; whereas the previous ones had been carried out in rural areas, this one brought back the kites to a semi-urban environment, close to the large conurbation of Gateshead and its neighbour on the north bank of the River Tyne, Newcastle.   People can now walk to admire the red kites in the Lower Derwent Valley.

Looking forward to April’s meeting which will include our very first Annual General Meeting as well as a speaker.
