Red Kite -- The Red Kite was saved from national extinction by one of the world's longest running protection programmes, and has now been successfully re-introduced to England and Scotland. I like the shift from orange to green.
The Red Kite (Milvus milvus) is a medium-large bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as eagles, buzzards, and harriers. The species is currently endemic to the Western Palearctic region in Europe and northwest Africa, It is resident in the milder parts of its range in western Europe and northwest Africa.
