Gigrin Farm


The Red Kite feeding station at Gigrin Farm attracts as many as 600 of these beautiful birds of prey, together with buzzards, ravens and other species.Five permanent hides, three of which are wheelchair friendly, allow the visitor to see their stunning aerial displays as they dive out of the sky to pick up the food. Specialist hides for photographing, and filming, are also available. Gigrin Farm attracts a variety of rare and interesting birds, as well as otters, polecats, badgers and hares, and the spring and summer flowers are breath taking. The farm has an interpretive centre where visitors can use interactive computer displays, see into a red kite nest and watch video recordings of the farm's badgers.Feeding takes place at 2pm in winter and 3pm in summer (kites don't know that we change the clocks!) But for Christmas day, the farm is open from 12.30pm every day.


The Powell family that own Gigrin Farm would never have known just what they were starting back in the early 90's when the late Mr Powell had the foresight in accepting the RSPB's request to make the kite feeding at Gigrin Farm a permanent fixture. A visit to see the Kite feeding at Gigrin will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end and confirm to you a sight that you've never seen before. If you are a bird enthusiast or not you can't help fall in love with these birds of prey and see just how easy a decision it was all them many years ago for the late Mr Powell to set up this now very important feeding station and rehabilitation centre. Thats right, the centre allows kites, that have fallen ill or been injured, to recuperate after having any required veterinary care elsewhere. Forget your binoculars at your peril! New for this year is their Café that serves hot and cold food and drinks.
