We have had two red kites in our rehabilitation aviary recently. The first was brought in by local vets having been found to be malnourished. It quickly gained weight and spent time on the perch. The second kite was brought to us by a member of the public having been blown into a fence during stormy weather.
We are delighted to report that both kites recovered fully and have now been released back into the wild.

I miss seeing the red kites ๐Ÿ˜”. We used to live in Buckinghamshire, but have lived in Cornwall for the last 6 years, and we don’t have any, only buzzards. I miss that distinctive shape in the sky x

Please remember that the clocks go forward tonight, so we will be feeding the red kites at 3pm from tomorrow onward.
The farm will open at 1pm as usual. We have an outdoor but covered seating area for your coffees, and a completely re-vamped shop.
