KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 A gravel path runs a short dis­tance to a bound­ary gate where an in­for­ma­tion panel ex­plains how the horses and ponies you will see are part of the grass­land man­age­ment. Grey Par­tridges are pos­si­ble in the dunes. Check for Lit­tle Egrets and Grey Heron.

2 It is worth the walk to reach Aber­rme­nai Point. Pale-bel­lied Brent Geese, Wi­geon and Pin­tail should be ob­vi­ous while waders should in­clude Bar-tailed God­wits, Curlew and Grey Plover.

3 The hin­ter­land is never to be ne­glected, said in sum­mer to be one of the best places in North Wales to see a Cuckoo. Ravens are ever-present, win­ter vis­i­tors in­clude Hen Harrier, Merlin, Pere­grine and Short-eared Owl.

4 An eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble hide over­look­ing Llyn Rhos-ddu with its grebes, Tufted Duck and Coot. Wa­ter Rails are more likely to be heard than seen.
