start at the visitor centre, not just for the facilities but because the feeders attract a continual passage of birds including tits, great spotted Woodpeckers, nuthatches, siskins and, in winter, Bramblings.
What chance a sighting of a party of Crossbills? Listen out for their deep purring notes. goldcrests are resident while nestboxes attract tits and, in summer, Pied Flycatchers. other summer visitors include redstarts, while Tree Pipits readily take to areas of recently felled conifers.
Tufted ducks are a winter visitor to Llyn nant yr Arian and have nested. others include Little grebe, Teal, goldeneye and goosander.
From the western side of Llyn nant yr Arian, enjoy the spectacle of red Kites at the afternoon feeding time, or make the walk to the eastern shore with its hide and the actual feeding area.
From a vantage point looking west down into the valley enjoy the magical experience of watching the kites or see a passing Buzzard and listen out for the ‘cronking’ call of a pair of ravens as they tumble about the sky. What a way to conclude your visit.
