AFter my trip to Gilfach, I and some friends meet up at Gigrin farm. The weather did not look great and in fact only got more cloudy and darker as the red kite feeding time drew nearer and just sadly continued to get worse as they were fed. However having a camera with good High ISO noise performance (Pentax K-5) and a faster lens (DA*300mm F4) I managed to get few nice shots, though grey sky is not fantastic in most shots, I got nice background on one diving, showing off the red kites best angle, its back.
As you can imagine with moving subjects in poor light many were deleted. I did manage the rare sight of a red kite on the ground.
It didn’t look entirely healthy to me to be honest but was feeding well.
