I'd don't believe that kites are vegetarians, so I think if kites replaced gulls round the city, it would be due to a plague of rats or something similar and that people might appreciate the "work" they do.

I've only seen them zoom past the camera a couple of times, but the
forked tail looked pretty good to me. Maybe smaller than our kite?
Very hard to tell.

I wonder if we'd hate them as much if kites replaced silver gulls
around the city?

I saw a momentary close up of one, apparently actually landed on the field. The cameraman tried to follow it in close-up as it took off, but lost it.
Looked like a Black Kite ( or their split cousin) at a glance.
