Birdwatching on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales
This is a one-day tour birdwatching North Wales on the beautiful island of Anglesey. This is one of our most popular guided North Wales Birdwatching day trips and is the perfect introduction to birding on the Isle of Anglesey at any time of year. We tour this beautiful island visiting the very best birding locations, including forest, estuaries, seacliffs and lagoons, where we will look for the special birds and mammals each of these varied habitats has to offer.
You can be sure of lots of birds and an exciting birdwatching North Wales experience at any time of year. Throughout the year we tour the best wildlife locations on Anglesey, looking out for the resident speciality birds including the charismatic Chough and Black Guillemot. In early summer, we will visit the busy seabird colonies and in autumn we'll keep an eye out for returning migrant waders. Winter brings its own excitement with flocks of wintering geese, ducks and waders.
At any time of year, we may encounter Atlantic grey seals, harbour porpoises and engaging red squirrels. Expect plenty of birds and other wildlife on this bird-packed, fun-filled, guided day trip to watch birds on the Island of Anglesey! A birding tour in Wales doesn't get better than this!
Our guided day trips in North Wales usually start at 8 am and we spend our morning visiting a number of different locations, the best sites for birds depending on the time of year, the weather and the latest bird news. This could include dramatic seacliffs to look for seabirds, or maybe a wetland reserve to look for breeding waders, or perhaps some sea watching off a coastal point.
We will take a break for lunch - we know all the best cafes on the island for a delicious snack lunch of local produce - and continue our birding in the afternoon, maybe visiting an inland freshwater lake, perhaps calling into an area of coniferous forest, or waiting by a vast marshy estuary to look for raptors coming in to roost. This birding tour in North Wales is incredibly varied and with our many years of experience, we know all the best places to visit for a wonderful birding experience.
