Numbers again rise + Clocks are changing soon..

The numbers of red kites coming to feed are now well in excess of 400 and with the colder weather they will increase almost weekly.

The Clocks will be changing on the night of the 29th, so...
As from Sunday 30th October, red kite feeding will be at 2pm, and will not change back again until the end of March..

We had a very under weight red kite brought in by photographer Janet Baxter, from Nant yr Arian.
It was near death through malnutrition.

I'm happy to report that the kite is now able to make short flights and even has a little meat either side its breast bone.

Another couple of weeks should see it ready to be released.
