Where to Photograph Red Kites

We are attempting to list all places where photographers can photograph Red Kites within the UK. This initial list is broken into two sections, the Feeding Stations lists the various feeding stations, where in most cases hides and facilities will be set up for viewing and photographing of the kites at feeding times. The second part is where you are more likely to see them within some regions of the UK because they are near conservation release sites, at those locations however you are not guaranteed to see any and if you do they are likely to be in ones and twos where the feeding stations tend to draw in larger numbers. This is the start of a list that will both grow over time and hopefully we will be able to add more columns or information.

Where the names in the first column is hyperlinked this links to a Location page with more information on this site and over time more of these will be added, we will be delighted if some of you would like to also produce location pages. All Website links updated May 2013.
