Grigin Farm

I had the opportunity to go to Grigin farm in Mid-Wales last month. Mid-Wales was once home to one of the last remaining red kite populations. There has now been a population explosion there, helped by feeding stations such as the one at Grigin farm.
I saw up to 400 red kites coming in to feed. The way they swirll and swoop in to snatch the food is spectacular.

The experience has inspired me to work on a painting of a red kite this year. For more information on Grigin farm and its continuing work to protect red kites click here.
