24th March 2019 – Gigrin Farm, Wales

On a most fantastic spring day we had a wonderful trip to the Red Kite Centre at Gigrin Farm which is located in beautiful countryside, in the heart of Mid Wales, overlooking both the Wye and Elan Valleys,  just half a mile from the market town of Rhayader.

The 2 hour drive  was a sheer delight through this beautiful part of Wales. We arrived in good time for the kite feeding which takes place at 2 pm (or 3 pm in summer as the Red Kites don’t understand about the clocks going forward).

I anticipated that it would be very easy to take photos of the birds and was quite surprised how difficult it was to focus on the swooping kites and how exhausting the whole exercise was. Nonetheless, I was very pleased with the results.

The drive back was just as interesting although we failed to find a café open on a Sunday afternoon to break our journey.

There were rather a lot of photos to edit but these are some of my favourites:
