Welcome to Kite Country - a very special part of Wales, which is home to the rare and beautiful Red Kite.

The Kite Country project was established at Gigrin Farm, Rhayader, in 1994 to encourage visitors to come and see the majestic Red Kite. Until that point, because of threats to the bird, the location of breeding kites had been a well-kept local secret for over 100 years.

Kite Country invites you to visit Mid Wales to discover the Red Kite, and other wildlife, in their own natural environment, without disturbing or endangering any of these species.

Whether you're someone who just loves the peace and tranquillity of the countryside or an avid birdwatcher, Kite Country is the place for you.
