Audio Recordings - Listen to kites calling to each other

Listen to the Red Kite calling by clicking on any of these three audio files

The recordings were taken during late afternoon, in woodland. Approximately 20-30 kites were present. Some of the birds were close by and were calling to others perched in trees at a distance of approx. 200/250ft.

The relative sound level of the aircraft flying overhead heard in file 2 gives an indication of just how loud the call of the kites can be, when up close to them!

File 2 duration: 28 seconds.
