1Guillemots and Razorbills nest on the cliffs at Dol-y-fran immediately to the west of the village, though have usually departed by late July, while Fulmars will be present until early September.
2The coastal scrub provides nesting sites for Wrens, Stonechats and Whitethroats while those with a keen ear should hear the reeling notes of Grasshopper Warblers. One ponders as to what birds might tarry here at migration time.
3Oystercatchers, Rock Pipits and Wheatears breed on the headland, which, extending well seaward of the main direction of coastline offers considerable scope for seawatching; what a pity the comparative remoteness means few bird watchers come this way.
4Fulmars, Guillemots and Razorbills all nest and one is prompted to wonder as to the possibility of Black Guillemots quietly taking up residence. The Lochtyn coastline seems eminently suitable; after all they now nest at Fishguard, 25 miles to the south west.
5Choughs which nest in the coastal caves forage on the close-cropped swards on the steep slopes or swoop and glide as do Red Kites, Buzzards and Ravens in apparently joyous abandon.
