The bird of Wales is without question the Red Kite. For many years the only ones in Great Britain were the handful clinging on, and only just, in a few remote Welsh valleys.

Wildlife, Lakes and Reservoirs in the Brecon Beacons

Open-air recreation offers an ideal way to get closer to Mother Nature – whilst being exhilarating for body and soul. Wales has some of the best, and most easily accessible natural features in Britain - and people have been exploring them for generations.

The bird of Wales is without question the Red Kite. For many years the only ones in Great Britain were the handful clinging on, and only just, in a few remote Welsh valleys. Its fortunes monitored, and protection provided, for almost a century by a dedicated band of watchers to whom we should be eternally grateful. Their efforts have been well rewarded for now one can enjoy watching Red Kites across much of the heartland of Wales.

These same inland valleys, often with superb woodlands, also have other specialities such as Redstarts, Wood Warblers, Pied Flycatchers and Ravens. On many streams and rivers Goosanders, Kingfishers, Grey Wagtails and Dippers can be seen while Little Ringed Plovers nest on some gravel banks.

The RSPB is the UK charity working to secure a healthy environment for birds and other wildlife, helping to create a better world for us all.
