Article summary

As in the case with the Buzzard (Buteo buteo), the Red Kites has started nesting in open type biotopes (rows of trees, hedges, lone trees). An example which occured in 1980 in Eastern Belgium is related here : the author describes the development of nidification and gives certain details on the behaviour and feeding habits of Red Kites, along with the number of cases of nesting between 1976 and 1980 in the German-speaking part of the country.
