  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

Four-day guided birdwatching tour in North Wales

Our four-day guided birdwatching tour earlier this week proved to be a huge success! The variety of habitats within easy reach of our base in Llandudno provided a wonderful array of species with minimal driving required between sites, allowing maximum time for prolonged views of all the birds.

Great Orme big sky

Keith, Mary and Sue all enjoyed the stunning scenery and were very impressed with the long list of birds that we were able to share with them. They also greatly appreciated the relaxed pace and each day were very surprised when we went through the checklist and found that we recorded over 80 species on each of the four days given the amount of time we took to enjoy each site and its speciality species.

Cemlyn Lagoon

During the four days we explored everything from seacliffs, estuaries, lagoons, marshes, lakes, rivers, a variety of woodlands, moorlands and mountains. Not many places in the UK have this heady mix of habitats and birds all within a relatively small area. North Wales really is an ideal place for a birdwatching break at any time of year, and Llandudno is the ideal base for exploring this bird-rich area being just a few minutes off the A55 coast road, less than an hour from Manchester airport and the M6 motorway.
