William Rufus the Red Kite
William came into the hospital in April 2002 after being hit by a car.
X-rays revealed that William had broken the tip of his wing, which would sadly not heal sufficiently for release. This meant that he would not be able to properly hunt in the wild and would perish.
William now lives in our large red kite aviaries in our Visitor Centre.
