Red Kites - Wales  

Red Kites

Witness these spectacular birds of prey feeding daily in the delightful surroundings of the Brecon Beacons National Park!


Llanddeusant Red Kite Feeding Station

Opened in 2002 by a local partnership with support from the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Welsh Red Kite Trust and various other notable wildlife organisations and individuals.
Visitors may sit in the specially built hide only feet away from diving birds and observe them competing naturally for the food provided by the feeding centre at regular times throughout  the year.

“We would rather people come to see the bird at feeding stations than go tramping through the countryside looking for their nests and eggs” 
Tony Cross, 
Welsh Kite Trust.

You don't have to be a pro here and the birds come pretty close  but a fairly long lens and/or zoom would help !
