    Hi all have just put deposit on a motorhome and now joined motorhomefun. Found 1 great site for wildlife watching already, Gigrin Farm which is also a Red Kite feeding station. So can you suggest any other sites with good wildlife watching onsite or nearby. Many thanks in advance. Birdvan

    Hi Birdvan, most camp sites in the UK are rural and even in some city ones you will be surprised at the dawn chorus that penetrates the thin walls and skylights of your motorhome. :Smile: Welcome to the fun

    We have our "own" Red Kites in our field:thumb:

    There is another red kite feeding station near our camp site but not as big as the other one.
    We also have our "own" Kites, buzzards and other birds of prey. One camper told me last week that a big dark bird of prey not a kite or buzzard came down and she saw it take a fish, no idea what that was.
    Hope no more otters or mink come back as they eat our fish ! :cry:

    Thanks all

    Hi all thanks for replies and welcomes to motorhomefun.
    Dylan notice we have similar interests, you and others might be interested in my website www.cretewww.com now approaching 3500 photos onsite.
    That covers my photography and computer interest. Regards motorcycles I did four seasons of road racing and 2 Manx GPs. Would love to see your otters! so might visit some day perhaps even soon.

    Cheers all Birdvan

    There is a pull out supplement in the May issue of Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly about short breaks on the wild side of the UK. Some tips in there for wildlife watching :)

    Hi, no Otters here now thank goodness as they eat our fish. Been to your site and a great site with great photography, I will spend some more time there as loads to read and see.
    Other half was a racer in the 70's but both love the GP's.
    You and your camera will be welcome here :thumb:
