This is an official Red Kite Feeding station of the RSPB. The red kites are fed every day (during summer at 3pm / during winter at 2pm). You can watch this from hides and this makes a wonderful and impressive spectacle. When I visited this feeding centre, a large group (30-40) of red kites grouped together shortly before the time of feeding. After the pieces of meat where shattered on the ground they al started swooping down to get their share.

I really enjoy the show they're putting on - gives me a great sense of what it must be like to soar. Nice contrast with the blue sky and they seem to be moving quickly.
