Bwlch Nant Yr Arian - Edd Cottell

Bwlch Nant Yr Arian

Photographers are always looking for something different and something interesting.  A friend told me about this forestry commission place where they feed the Red kites, and having had a few sessions at Gigrin Farm over the years, it was time for a change.  Bwlch Nant Yr Arian sits atop the hills above Aberystwyth, with views of the sea to the West and the valleys to the East.  The Kites are fed everyday at 3pm (2pm Winter), and to my delight, they are fed next to a lake.  Most of the food is thrown onto the grass, but some is thrown into the water.  This provides a great chance to see Kites swooping down and plucking food from the water.  It just shows what skilled flies these birds are!
