Overview

A purpose built hide for viewing the feeding of the Red Kites . The hide has some wooden benches to sit on and standing room with a shelf to rest a camera on . We feed at 3.00PM SUMMER and then 2.00PM when the clocks change the end of OCTOBER. You need to be inside the hides before feeding time , If you arrive after feeding time you may not be allowed into the hides because this disturbs the people already inside and waiting. NOISE must be kept to a minimum so that the Red Kites are not scared away Children must be taken out if making too much noise . Remember these birds are wild and we have no control on how many will turn up or how soon they will dive in for the food . Every day is different and also weather dependant etc etc CAFE IS CLOSED , PLEASE EAT, DRINK ETC ON ROUTE WELL BEHAVED DOGS WELCOME must be on a lead. REMEMBER YOU MUST BE IN THE HIDE BEFORE FEEDING SO YOU WILL NOT BE TURNED AWAY . THEY ARE COMPLETELY WILD AND WE CANNOT PREDICT HOW SOON THEY WILL COME IN TO FEED .

This was a brilliant experience we watched red kites...about 20 or 30, feeding, we also saw buzzards feeding on the ground unperturbed by us being 30 yards away in hides

We were lucky enough to watch the 3pm feed this Saturday after randomly noticing the centre whilst driving past exploring the area. What can I say!!!! Simply amazing. £6 entry to the hides and in front of you are hundreds of feeding red kites. See...More

Once you've found this site, you are asked to sit quietly. At feeding time (2pm gmt) the man in charge puts raw meat out for the birds. Immediately about 80 Red Kites descend from the sky to swoop on the food and devour it. Amazing!...More

I have waited 12 years to see Red Kites and this experience was a high point because we saw the birds at close quarters. We valued the quiet in the hides and the commitment of the organisers/staff. The station is perfectly positioned, away from the...More

Excellent place for the bird enthusiasts, plenty of red kites come in to feed and there are lots of photo opportunities.

I have been to a couple of excellent kite feeding stations in the very distant past. Are you the one that puts the food on a small island and you can see the birds from the other end of the water?

Hi, I feed the Red Kites in front of the hide and I am told from my photographers that have visited all feeding stations that I feed much closer than all of them . Hope to see you soon .

Hi, the cafe is still shut sadly as it wasn't busy enough. We have had change of use and it is now three adult only holiday apartments . We do have a toilet at the hide for customers . Hope this helps

Hello, we want to bring our dogs and leave them in the car. If it is a hot day the windows need to be rolled down. Sometimes the dogs make a lot of noise, so we wanted to check if the car park is far enough away from the birds (we don't want the dogs' noise to disturb the birds). Thanks!

HI, if you have to bring your dogs with you then please bring them into the hide, even with the windows open it is not recommended by the RSPCA to leave any dog in the car even with the windows open this time of year .
