Attraction in Powys
The Red Kite feeding station at Gigrin Farm attracts as many as 600 of these beautiful birds of prey, together with buzzards, ravens and other species.Five permanent hides, three of which are wheelchair friendly, allow the visitor to see their stunning aerial displays as they dive out of the sky to pick up the food. Specialist hides for photographing, and filming, are also available. Gigrin Farm attracts a variety of rare and interesting birds, as well as otters, polecats, badgers and hares, and the spring and summer flowers are breath taking. The farm has an interpretive centre where visitors can use interactive computer displays, see into a red kite nest and watch video recordings of the farm's badgers.Feeding takes place at 2pm in winter and 3pm in summer (kites don't know that we change the clocks!) But for Christmas day, the farm is open from 12.30pm every day.
