Thank you so much for your lovely review and I will pass on your kind words to Sandra. I know that she enjoyed your company in the hide that day. Look forward to seeing you here again one day, and best wishes from us all.

controlled feeding close to the Hide so you get great views of swooping red kites which are fantastically acrobatic birds.
