Anglesey & N Wales Coast

Wales
Vast gatherings of Dunlins and other waders are drawn to the North Wales coastline every winter.
Packed into this island, only 25 miles across, is an astonishing variety of habitats including sea cliffs, rocky shores, muddy and sandy estuaries, dunes, lagoons, large reservoirs, small lakes, rivers, woodlands, reed-beds, fens, mires, heaths, scrub and mixed farmland. It is little wonder that Anglesey is one of the finest birdwatching sites in Britain and its strategic position, jutting out into the Irish Sea, makes it especially rewarding for sea watching. During this weekend we will explore several key sites, with good chances of divers, sea-duck, auks, waders (including Purple Sandpiper and three “shanks”), wildfowl and of course raptors such as Hen Harrier, Peregrine and Merlin. The conifer forest at Newborough Warren regularly attracts Crossbills. Our itinerary includes Malltraeth, Afon Braint, Newborough Warren, Llanwddyn Island Red Wharf Bay and Penmon Point. We will also explore the North wales coast including the RSPB reserve at Conwy, a great spot for a number of wetland species including Water Rail, waders, wildfowl and Kingfisher.
