Birding North Wales Day Trip for Wonderful Waders

Birdwatching in North Wales Trip focusing on Waders

This is a one-day trip to go birdwatching in North Wales focusing on looking for wading birds. Autumn is THE best time to be out looking at waders. Some people find them confusing, but we're here to help! Learn more about this fascinating family of migrant birds on a relaxed, informal day in North Wales on our special Birdwatching in Wales day trip.

Want to find out more about waders? Then this is the trip for you! We will visit a variety of sites seeking out these long-distance migrants and look at the best ways to identify waders. We hope you will pick up lots of tips on wader identification and be amazed by the journeys these migrants undertake. Of course, we will enjoy lots of other birds too on this exciting day to watch waders in Wales. Our itinerary will depend on the latest bird news and the weather on the day.

This special Wader-watching day-long tour in Wales is run on a custom basis so we can tailor the day to suit you. This day is all about waders so that will be the focus of this day, but of course, we are sure to encounter other birds along the way. After meeting up, we will visit the best locations for enjoying great views of waders, with our exact itinerary determined by the tides and weather on the day.

We will take our time to really get to grips with the birds on this day tour in North Wales, so you have plenty of time to enjoy views of the birds through our top-of-the-range telescopes, take photographs if you wish and ask as many questions as you like. Is there a particular wader you would like to study? Then just let us know and we will take you to the best place to look for them on our custom bird watching day trip in Wales with you.

Our top highlights could include:

  • Enjoying close views of waders from the hides at RSPB Conwy
  • Watching waders pushed up close inshore as the tide rises at Aber Ogwen
  • Comparing different wader species on the saltmarsh of Foryd Bay
  • Watching small waders including Dunlin and Ringed Plover at Beddmanarch Bay
  • The thrill of knowing you can separate your Bar-tailed from your Black-tailed Godwits with confidence!
