Visited as a recommendation from a family member that went and I’m so happy we did. Friendly staff that were very helpful and knowledgeable. Stunning to see so many beautiful birds up close and all for the good of the species.

I visited the feeding station on Friday and was blown away at the number of Red Kites visible, making for an excellent photographic experience. Peter was also very friendly, and clearly a lover of wildlife. Will be back again!
