Numbers of one of Scotland's rarest birds of prey, the red kite, have increased this year despite violent storms in May and illegal poisoning.

Red kites became extinct in Scotland in the Victorian era.

But a reintroduction programme began in 1989 and the number of fledglings has reached a record high.

A report from RSPB Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage said there were now 186 breeding pairs of red kites, an increase of 22 on last year.

A total of 314 young birds fledged.
