About Gigrin Red Kite Feeding Centre
With the meat clutched in its talons the kite will make for clear airspace where it can feel secure enough to feed. The number of kites using the feeding station can vary anything from a dozen to 300 or more depending on the weather and time of year.
The Red Kite Interpretive Centre offers information on red kites and wildlife. A remote camera overlooks the kite feeding area and gives the user complete control of pan, zoom and focus.
Live pictures of badgers are relayed back to the centre on summer evenings, via infra red equipped CCTV, with recorded footage being shown at other times. The touch screen computer with its multimedia database gives an insight into the varied sights and sounds of the many local raptors.
The site has 5 large hides facing east, and, being just metres away from where the kites sweep down, the hides give excellent opportunities for photography. Three are suitable for disabled access.
The farm trail is on part of the 200 acres of grassland and woodland where wildlife and birdlife is abundant, passing a new wetland area.
