Description of Habitat & Facilities

Wild Red Kites are fed on a daily basis at the Bwlch Nant-yr-Arian Forest visitor centre in mid-Wales. The forestry commission has opened a brand new eco-friendly information centre at this location.

This is as good as the Gigrin farm kite feeding station in Rhayader and well worth a visit by members who happen to be in the mid-Wales area.

There is a cafe in the information centre which provides light refreshments. The kites are fed daily at 3.00pm in the summer months and 2.00pm in the winter. There is an excellent children’s adventure play area on site and for the more active there are marked walking and mountain bike tracks.

Regular Wildlife Safaris are run by the below mentioned who is investigating accessible transport so that dba members can take part:
