Red Kites

We saw seven coincidentally last year about this time at Swallick Hill near Basingstoke. A wonderful display to watch. Lucky you as they seem to have moved on from here, not seen many numbers this year just the odd one or two.

Red Kites

They are fantastic birds to watch. We have seen a few over Inkpen Hill and also Cheesefoot, and once one over our garden, but never so many together at the same time. Not quite up to Mid Wales standard but certainly exciting to see.

Mid Wales

I think they are fed there aren't they.

Gigrin Farm

There is a feeding station at Gigrin Farm but you can see them any where in Wales now. The Ryhader area is very good, also good for dippers. I remember back in the late 70's early 80's one of the best places to see Red Kites was Cors Caron. But back then they were just hanging on in Wales.
