Gigrin Farm Red Kite Centre in Rhayader Powys


Red Kite Interpretative Centre

The 'Red Kite Interpretative Centre' offers information on kites, and other birds and animals found in the locality. 

A remote camera overlooks the kite feeding area and gives the user complete control of pan, zoom and focus.

A set of eight water colours by the well known artist 'Philip Snow' have recently been added and tell the history of the red kite from the iron age through to today.

Ink stamps of animals and birds are provided for children, (although as many adults as children can sometimes be seen clustering around the stamp table).

Live pictures of badgers are relayed back to the centre on summer evenings, via infra red equipped CCTV, with recorded footage being shown at other times.

The touch screen computer with its multimedia database gives an insight into the varied sights and sounds of the many local raptors

Our small 'kite' cabin offers a variety of merchandise with kite orientated goods ranging from postcards to telescopes and now also serves hot beverages during the winter months. Binoculars are a popular item and can be tried out here in 'field' conditions.
