A Red Kite, a bird of prey that is rarely seen in Sheffield, was spotted circling over Scott Road on Sunday 9th December.
This bird almost vanished from Britain, with only 20 pairs left in Wales in 1960. In the 1990's Red Kites were successfully re-introduced to Scotland, Wales, Southern England and the Midlands. They can now also be regularly seen just north of Leeds.
Red Kites have a wingspan of upto 5½ feet and are easily recognised by their distinctive forked tails.
