Thirteen years ago Gigrin Farm, mid-Wales, was just another upland sheep farm nestled high above sea level in the Wye and Elan valleys.

But today the farm is a popular visitors' spot thanks to one of the largest populations of Red Kites in the UK.

"Farms are brilliant places to watch wildlife from a different perspective. From orchards to winter birds, a trip to our farmlands offers a really fascinating winter wildlife experience.


"Lots of farmers are working hard to put wildlife back into the countryside."
