A Red Kite is pictured above swooping towards the ground in Pontrhydfendigaid, Wales, UK.   Red Kites are endemic to the western Palearctic, with the European population (19,000 to 25,000 pairs) making up 95% of its global breeding range. The Palearctic or Palaearctic is the largest of the eight biogeographic regions in the world, consisting of Europe, Asia (north of the Himalayas foothills), North Africa, and the northern and central parts of the Arabian Peninsula.
