Re: What's with all the Red kites?

I've seen more but it's about this time of the year that the young birds are taking their first flights.

That would account for the increased numbers seen recently but that would not explain the overall increase (if there actually is one).

Why there are a lot more this year overall?- a warm winter? Less breeding adults killed by cars (because of less cars on the road due to COVID-19) back in April/May)? Less pollution...?
