Red Kite

The Red Kite is a bird of prey and is a familiar sight in Wales. Ask Mike or Alison for directions where one can watch Red Kites feeding in groups, a sight not to be missed.

Other names for the Red Kite are “Glead” “Cyta” “Swallow Buzzard” “Barcud Coch” and “Boda Chwiw”

There are now about 500 breeding pairs of Red Kites in Wales due to the species protection programmes.

Wales is still worth visiting to see the Red Kite. Set against the background of wild and rugged landscapes, of wooded valleys and uplands. The visitor can see the wonderful spectacle of “wild” kites being fed at feeding stations located at Gigrin farm on the outskirts of the town of Rhayader and Bwlch Nant-yr-Arian Forest Centre at Ponterwyd 10 miles east of Aberystwyth. It is at these places, seeing many birds together in graceful flight, that one can really appreciate why they rank as one of Britain’s favourite birds.
