Red kites take up residence above Knebworth Park

BIRDS which faced extinction a century ago have taken up residence in the grounds of Knebworth House – and now you can visit the estate to catch a glimpse of them.

Known as the ‘red arrows of the bird world,’ red kites can now be seen in the skies above the stately home over four days next week.

Charlotte Mufitt, Knebworth Park Operations manager, said: “We feel privileged that these splendid birds have chosen to make their home over our park.”

The Date With Nature event, organised by the RSPB, will take place between 11am and 5pm from August 12 to 15.

Entrance to the park costs �8 or �28 for a family of four.
