The journey down to the feeding station was looking promising, there was a dark, moody sky and light that lit up the whole hillside. I had the perfect picture in my head that I wanted to achieve from today. But upon arrival I realised that this was not going to be the case. When there is no sign of any red kites or (any birds for that matter) during feeding time you start to feel a bit unsure that anything is going to show. If you have ever been to Gigrin Farm you will have noticed the hordes of birds that surround the area before feeding time.
Anyway… after waiting an hour and half we saw a few red kites along with the odd corvid. The rain that came made an interesting backdrop.
