Red Kites at Gigrin.

I spent the afternoon on Monday with friends at the Gigrin Farm Red Kite Feeding centre near to Rhayader in Wales.

There were several hundred kites in the air at the peak feeding time and many others on the ground or in nearby trees.

Photographically the light was pretty good but there wasn't a great deal of blue sky,  often white or grey clouds which wasn't my ideal backdrop.

It is a super place to photograph these birds although isolating an individual bird is often difficult.

There were also lots of buzzards, ravens, mixed corvids and a single grey heron all feeding on the meat put out at the site.
