Take a Bite out of Nature!

Our friends, Kathy and Ken at Naturebites have just released their schedule of planned guided nature walks on Anglesey. If you would like to book a place, please contact Kathy using the details below:

Friday 7th March - Penrhos Coastal Park
Join Ken for a leisurely wildlife walk around this Holy Island gem. Key species we'll be looking out for are slavonian grebe, pale-bellied brent geese and great northern diver (this might be our last chance to see them before they return to their breeding grounds!).

Sunday 16th March - Soldier's Point
No one knows this area like Ken, in fact none other than Iolo Williams has recently been asking him about the birds of this spot! This could be a good date for scare migrants such as black restarts and snow buntings, but we'll also hope to show you black guillemot, ringed plover and little owl among many others.

Sunday 23rd March - South Stack
An absolute favourite spot for Naturebites! Local specialities such as chough, raven and peregine often make an appearance and at this time of year Ken's bird senses are tingling in anticipation of that next rare bird!
Fulmar, kittiwake, guillemot, razorbill and potentially even puffin are back to check out the cliff ledges and stonechat and meadow pipit are on territories for the coming season.

Sunday 30th March - Cemlyn Bay
Here we should enjoy the excitement of the first sandwich terns screeching over the shingle ridge as they return to their breeding islands on the lagoon.
As we walk around this coastal reserve, we will search for early migrants such as sand martins and wheatears as well as looking for lingering waders, including turnstone and purple sandpiper.
We can provide binoculars (as well as wildlife expertise!) on any of these walks. Please also let us know if you have any mobility issues as we will always try to plan a route to suit you.
