Red Kites - Gigrin Farm

Its been a while since I have had an opportunity to get a blog post on, life getting in the way!!! But at last I've been able to sort through the 1600+ shots I took recently at Gigrin Farm, and those stunning Red Kites. We travelled down to Gigrin Farm, via a morning walk up Cadair Idris to Llyn Cau, the morning weather was a bit murky but as we left the mountain to travel down the afternoon got better and better, with clear blue skies when we arrived. For anyone that hasn't visited Gigrin, I would really recommend it, until this visit I had only ever seen the occasional Red Kite from a distance, but when the feeding begins here there are hundreds of them in the air all around you, and at times I just didn't know where to point the camera, the difficulty being they swoop so quick but the auto focus on the D300S is pretty good when locked on so I managed to get some decent shots, with the bonus of some decent Buzzard shots. I've have posted a selection below
