Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them

Enjoying good birds on Anglesey whatever the weather!

The weather forecast wasn't great as we picked up Bob and Kate first thing for a day's guiding on Anglesey. Sure enough, the predicted rain and fog closed in upon the island, reducing our views quite considerably. Plenty of warm, waterproof clothing was the order of the day.

Kate still smiling, no matter what the weather

We weren't going to let any weather stand in our way however, as we enjoyed great birds at Aber Ogwen, Malltraeth, Beddmanarch Bay, Holyhead Harbour and South Stack. Star of the show had to be this juvenile Black-throated Diver showing well at Holyhead Harbour:

Rock Pipit

Even this Rock Pipit came in close to take a look at these birders out in all weathers

A big thank you to Kate and Bob for braving the weather and making the day so enjoyable. We hope to see you again soon.

We've got plenty more exciting day trips planned in the near future:

  • A visit to RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands and Martin Mere WWT on Saturday 25th February
  • Another Hawfinch Hunt scheduled for Wednesday 14th March
  • Just one place left on our North Wales Uplands Tour on Sunday 18th March where we will search for Great Grey Shrike, Crossbills, Goshawks and other raptors.

For more details of these and any of our other tours, please email us on .
We look forward to hearing from you!
