The spring situation regarding all adopted kites will now be combined with the autumn sightings and mailed out towards the end of November. I am really sorry for this and will endeavour to make sure that it doesn't happen again this spring.
Anyone wishing to adopt a kite should send a cheque for ?50 made payable to the Welsh Kite Trust, to Samaria, Nantmel, Llandrindod Wells Powys. LD1 6EN. Adopters will be given their own exclusive chick and supplied with a photograph taken of it when it is ringed. If you live or visit Wales you could request a chick from a nest close to you so that you may have a chance of seeing it yourself. You will receive a twice-yearly update (hopefully!) listing all the occasions that your kite has been positively identified and further photos if these are available. Please note that your kite, although hopefully one of those that is seen frequently over a period of many years, may be one of those that "vanishes" without trace.
