Finally Made It

Finally made it up to Gigrin Farm yesterday for the black kite.Did expect a Shuttle bus down to the hides after paying four Great British Pounds but no such luck and we had to walk.Managed to connect with the Kite before the feeding started.Quite surprised to see some of the hides were £15 and £20 to get in.All in all a good day.
