Kite flying

Simon King visits a Welsh farm where the farmers have been feeding the local red kites for 16 years. It started when the farmer noticed a red kite watching a rabbit his dog had caught. Now pieces of meat are thrown across a field for the kites and over a hundred red kites regularly swoop down to snatch it from the ground. Simon is putting the food out a little later than usual in the hope of filming some of the immature birds that don't usually get a look in.
