The hide has some wooden benches to sit on and standing room with a shelf to rest a camera on . We feed at 3.00pm summer and then 2.00pm when the clocks change the end of October . You need to be inside the hides before feeding time , if you arrive after feeding time you may not be allowed into the hides because this disturbs the people already inside and waiting. NOISE must be kept to a minimum so that the Red Kites are not scared away Children must be taken out if making too much noise . Remember these birds are wild and we have no control on how many will turn up or how soon they will dive in for the food . Every day is different and also weather dependant etc etc « less
