A purpose built hide for viewing the feeding of the Red Kites . The hide has some wooden benches to sit on and standing room with a shelf to rest a camera on . We feed at 3.00PM SUMMER and then 2.00PM when the clocks change the end of OCTOBER. You need to be inside the hides before feeding time , If you arrive after feeding time you may not be allowed into the hides because this disturbs the people already inside and waiting. NOISE must be kept to a minimum so that the Red Kites are not scared away Children must be taken out if making too much noise . Remember these birds are wild and we have no control on how many will turn up or how soon they will dive in for the food . Every day is different and also weather dependant etc etc CAFE IS CLOSED , PLEASE EAT, DRINK ETC ON ROUTE WELL BEHAVED DOGS WELCOME must be on a lead. REMEMBER YOU MUST BE IN THE HIDE BEFORE FEEDING SO YOU WILL NOT BE TURNED AWAY . THEY ARE COMPLETELY WILD AND WE CANNOT PREDICT HOW SOON THEY WILL COME IN TO FEED .

Once you've found this site, you are asked to sit quietly. At feeding time (2pm gmt) the man in charge puts raw meat out for the birds. Immediately about 80 Red Kites descend from the sky to swoop on the food and devour it. Amazing! In Yorkshire we see these birds on rare occasions. Here you are guaranteed to see... More

I have waited 12 years to see Red Kites and this experience was a high point because we saw the birds at close quarters. We valued the quiet in the hides and the commitment of the organisers/staff. The station is perfectly positioned, away from the distractions of tourist trails but nevertheless accessible on foot or by car.

We were driving from Aberyswyth to Brecon and saw that this was on the way, so we planned to be there for feeding time. The last 7 miles were of the one-lane variety that have you wondering if you're lost, but the countryside is beautiful so it wouldn't even matter. But then we arrived in the back of beyond to...

My husband loves nature and we popped in here after driving past it. So glad we did. If you are a bird nut you will love it. At certain times of the day, park rangers feed the huge pack of red kites that appear as if a bell had been rung. The pictures we took were fantastic and it is... More

Boy what an amazing place! Went there with the kids and we were all captivated by the feeding frenzy at 3pm! (3pm on the nose, no delay or fuss.) It was amazing where the birds all came from - at 2:50pm there were a handful circling in the skies above, then as the tractor with the meat arrived, there were... More
