"Over the years we've certainly seen more and more interest by people in the area, by funding bodies to help us as well, and it's really worked well together, and that in turn has actually helped the red kites themselves, by having local support from people living and working in the local landscape we actually get a great deal of support from them as well."
"The Kite became extinct in Scotland back in 1979, and slightly earlier than that in England.
"We lost them from our countryside and it took a great number of years before they returned again, and it was the reintroduction programme, which took place here in Scotland and elsewhere in the UK, that helped these birds re-establish."
