People would kill the bird and steal its eggs for financial gain. Brecon now has the largest population of these fantastic wild birds who have started to make a recovery.
The Red Kite feeding centre is a place where you can watch dozens of these birds of prey feed in their natural habitat. The birds are totally wild and at 3.00 PM each day they are thrown meat which they impressively swoop down to collect. An impressive sight.

Llyn Y Fan Fach
A totally superb place to walk to. Walk through stunning open spaces in amongst the back drop of the Black Mountains. Llyn Y Fan Fach is a walk with a reward for those who go to the top. Breath taking scenery that will leave you speechless and amazed. You will look down and see a totally majestic lake which is famous in Welsh folk stories for its enchanted spirit, namely the lady of the lake. A ghostly apparition who guards the lake from unwanted spirits.
The lake is a must see for all, a superb picnic area, a place to spend a full summers day in peace and quiet. Adventurers can wild camp next to the lake and swim in it. (If you're brave enough). Llyn Y Fan is the lake that the actor Robson Green swam naked in as part of his extreme training for swimming naked in the freezing waters of the Norwegian Fjords. The water is extremely cold all year round.
The sky in this area has zero light pollution. This makes it a dark sky reserve which means it is one of the best geographically sited areas in the world for star gazing. Wrap up warm and take some blankets and a flask, lay back after dark on the grass and watch the most amazing, spectacular star display the universe has to offer. You won't have seen anything like this before. Each night is different to the last so the star show you see will be uniquely yours, it is a mesmerising powerful thing to see in such remote wild surroundings.
It will become one of your most treasured memories. Directions: Turn right out of the cottage and follow the lanes and signs for the Usk reservoir. Follow the road until you reach a cross roads which has 3 signs all in different directions on the compass. Red Kite centre, Myddfai and Llyn Y Fan Fach. Take the Llyn Y Fan Fach turn and follow the signs until you reach the parking area.
