We headed off on an afternoon adventure today to visit a bird hide.
We chose to go all out and visit the hide at Bwlch Nant yr Arian, a Natural Resources Wales site where the Red Kites are fed daily, so we were sure we’d see some fantastic birds.
Even the walk to the hide was pretty spectacular.
In the hide we were incredibly close to where the kites were being fed.
We could see them in the sky…
… on the ground…
.. and all the swooping inbetween.
It was perfect for our adventurer to get a close encounter with what must have been hundreds of Red Kites.
We even spotted a tiny frog.
We really love this place and have visited a few times before. Take a look at our blog for the accessible Barcud Trail on which the hide is situated.
For those who’d like to explore in more detail you can borrow an Explorers Pack from the visitor centre. This includes information, binoculars, a bug pot, equipment for tree rubbing and other bits and bobs.
There are also two great playgrounds and a huge bird feeder at perfect bird watching height.
A lovely wild afternoon with lots of bird hide action.
