1 You may be lured by the nearby water, but spend a little time in the woodlands. When you hear a Nuthatch noisily calling it is worth recalling that this bird did not breed on Anglesey until about 1910. Much the same can be said of the Great Spotted Woodpecker, which has thrived in recent decades. The little tree mouse, the Treecreeper, also occurs, though is unobtrusive when compared to either of its noisy neighbours.
2 Ynys Welltog is where Little Egrets first nested and must not be overlooked. Sighting a Kingfisher always brings that extra tingle of excitement to any bird-watching day, and is always possible on this section of the Menai Strait especially in winter.
3 Waders like Curlew, Dunlin, Oystercatcher and Redshank are likely along the waters edge while at passage times your attention may well be drawn by the call of a Common Sandpiper, perhaps heading for its upland breeding grounds, a short distance away in Snowdonia.
4 Little Grebes, Wigeon, Teal and Red-breasted Mergansers are present throughout the winter, while do not forget to scan the bridges for a sighting of a Peregrine and or Raven.
