Argaty Red Kites

Argaty Red Kites, Doune, Scotland

When in Central Scotland I always go and spend time at Lerrocks farm, the home of Argaty Red Kites. I’ve always had a deep interest in conservation and at Argaty they are proving that farming and conservation can live alongside one another. The biodiversity on the farm is a joy to behold with an abundance of wildlife, a growing population of Red Kites, wildflower meadows, dragon fly ponds and red squirrels’ just to name a few. Over the last few years I have enjoyed documenting the changes and progress on the farm. Now open to visitors (though closed due to Covid at the moment) I was delighted one day to get these images of some budding naturalists already taking an interest in conservation.
