I visited Gigrin Farm Kite Feeding Station and was treated to a spectacular show by an estimated 500 red kite plus a supporting cast of crows, rooks, buzzards (which remained aloof) a robin and a pheasant. I hesitated before posting some of my photographs as it was an artificial situation but, I suppose, no different to photographs of birds on a garden bird feeder. The birds, the snow, the beautiful blue sky made this one of those spectacular wildlife moments that will be remembered for a long time.
