Fun facts

  • Newborough Forest has one of the largest Raven roosts in the country, with up to 2,000 Ravens. It is also home to one of only three significant populations of Red Squirrels in Wales.
  • At the RSPB Conwy nature reserve you can see nightly Starling 'murmurations' where thousands of Starlings form wonderful shapes in the winter evening sky.
  • The Dee Estuary is recognised as one of the best places in the world for wintering birds. High tide is the best time to get closer views.
  • Gronant Sand Dunes is one of the best places in the UK to see beautiful Arctic visitors known as Snow Buntings.
  • The mudflats of the Traeth Lafan, connected to Spinnies Nature Reserve, can attract up to 15,000 birds in winter and is one of the best places in Europe for wintering birds.
  • The Anglesey Coast is a great place to see Seals, especially around Puffin Island, which ironically doesn't have any Puffins.
