This ground level hide is situated in the foothills of Gigrin Farm Red Kite Centre, right in the heart of mid-Wales, surrounded by the most breath-taking countryside overlooking both the Wye and Elan Valley. This is a chance to see the iconic national bird of Wales, the Red Kite.

Buzzards are often visiting in good numbers too. The ground level perspective will offer you a completely different view point from regular hides.

Like all wild life photography, with patience, luck and planning, you will be able to take some intimate photographs while the birds are feeding on the ground. If you are looking for action of low fly by’s, landings, take-offs and close-ups this is a perfect set up to capture some award- winning moments.

We will do our very best to make sure the environment is an inviting and safe place for the birds to feed. Alongside their regularly daily feed that Gigrin Farm lay out, we will strategically place down more food, if required, to create the photographic positions and action you want.

Connecting local wildlife to the surrounding community, we use quality hand cut meat products from the local butchery ‘Bob the butcher’ in Rhayader. We often use other bait, such as rabbits, pheasants and small rodents supplied by Wildlife Food suppliers.
