Attraction Information

For a truly natural nature trip you can beat the thrills of the Gigrin Farm flocks! Use the five large hides (three of which are accessible to the disabled), you can visit here any day of the year and see Wild Red Kites, buzzards and ravens swarm in to the feeding station and compete for the choicest pickings with what the folks at Gigrin Farm call breathtaking feats of aerial piracy!

It's a fantastic experience whether from the perspective of the casual observer or for those who know their twitchy stuff, so kids and grown-ups can enjoy it equally but on differing levels. Including jackdaws and carrion crows too the numbers can get up to 600 birds, so by anyone's standards that's a busy dinner table!

Really interesting to watch, it's a bit more combative in the colder months (as it would be) so smaller children would probably enjoy it more in summer, but of course they're much keener to turn up at all when it's cold! Regardless, warn the kids how much noise the birds can make, as it might come as a bit of a shock otherwise!

Your admission covers access to the 5 standard hides but you can also access the extra hides for an additional fee including 1 dedicated disabled specialist photographic hide and 3 specialist photographic hides which comprise The Gateway, The Tower and The Big Tower, which offer even better views if you've got the pennies to spare.
