An amazing release for injured red kite!

Releases are the best part of our work at Wildlife Aid, and the story of this red kite is a great example of why we do what we do.

Simon was called out to rescue a red kite that has been hit by a car. He found it lying by the roadside and quickly took it back to Emma, our vet, for a checkup. Amazingly, the bird was not injured and, after a few days R&R, it could be released back into the wild in one of our most incredible releases to date!

Thank you to wildlife artist Richard Symonds ( for providing the drone footage. Be sure to check our his incredible work!
