Feeding time at Gigrin Farm just outside the small mid-Wales town of Rhayader.
Not so long ago, the Red Kite Milvus milvus
, was on the verge of extinction in the British Isles after centuries of persecution. Thanks to education and the efforts of the RSPB and other wildlife organisations, this beautiful bird is staging a miraculous comeback (almost at risk of becoming a bit of a pest in it's strongholds).
Gigrin Farm has provided a refuge for the Red Kite for a couple of decades now and feeding time, which takes place twice daily, is a fantastic spectacle with many hundreds of birds demonstrating their fantastic low-level flying skills as they snatch morsels from the ground and eating on the wing.
If you're ever in the Rhayader area, I can highly recommend a visit to Gigrin Farm.
