Now the kite's fortunes are turning as attemprs are made to reintroduce this rare and endangered bird to other parts of the British Isles, and to enable it to be seen by many more people. Here is The Kite's Tale, told by Roger Lovegrove, the man who ...has been responcible for the [RSPB's] contribution to kite protection for 20 years."
