A custom birdwatching tour on Anglesey

Sometimes we're asked to put on a custom birdwatching tour which is tailored to suit our client. This means that we're able to put together an itinerary just for them, looking for any particular target species and going at a pace to suit them. For one, two, three or more people, we're very happy to tailor a day to give everyone exactly the kind of day they want. Yesterday we had a wonderful day touring Anglesey doing just that with Robert.

The day started with some pre-breakfast birding on the Great Orme where we were astonished to see a Marsh Harrier. Wow, the first we've ever seen on the Orme! Then after a good breakfast to fuel the inner birder, we headed over to RSPB South Stack. Still early enough to beat the crowds, we had great views of the cliffs packed with nesting seabirds, while more were dotted about on the flat calm sea below. Target birds Fulmar, Manx Shearwater, Kittiwake, Guillemot, Razorbill, Puffin, Rock Pipit, Chough and Raven all on the list!

Nearby, we caught up with a number of Black Guillemots.

On to Valley Lakes where we had great looks at Reed, Sedge and Cetti's Warblers as well as adding a good number of wildfowl to our growing list for the day.

Next we headed over to Cemlyn, stopping off at the Jam Factory for lunch.


Great spot for lunch, particularly if you like puppy biscuits!

Swallows swooped across the farm steading, slipping through a tight crack into a barn to their nests and pausing to preen on the telegraph wires above us.

When we got to Cemlyn, we walked out across the shingle ridge to take a closer look at the tern colony.

Look closely and you can even see the tongue flicking out!

We then took Robert back to his comfortable B&B in Llandudno at the end of a brilliant day's birdwatching around Anglesey, all at a relaxed pace but still notching up just under 90 species for the day . Thanks Robert for making it so enjoyable and we look forward to sharing more birds with you during your stay in North Wales!
