    Galloway Red Kite Trail - The Galloway Red Kite Trail is an exciting new opportunity to view spectacular red kites in lovely scenery around beautiful Loch Ken.


    Web Page Info

    The Galloway Red Kite Trail is an exciting new birdwatching opportunity to view spectacular red kites in lovely scenery is now attracting the attention of walkers, cyclists, wildlife lovers and birdwatchers in Dumfries and Galloway and from much further afield. The 'Galloway Kite Trail' around beautiful Loch Ken promotes the population of kites, recently re-established in Kirkcudbrightshire, as a source of nature-based tourism to benefit local communities in the area.

    A feeding station with a hide has been established at Bellymack Hill Farm near Laurieston, and over 30 kites have often been seen together over winter months. These have included many of the birds released in 2003, as well as adult birds and two individuals that arrived from other populations.  The site also offers good views of raven and buzzard.  Large numbers of kites are best seen in late afternoon in the winter months, but there are generally some kites around all day at any time of the year.
