RSPB South Stack

One of the best places to see wildlife, in their natural environment is South Stack, Anglesey. The award winning wildlife reserve is managed by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).

Don’t worry if it’s cold weather, you can always buy a warming cup of tea at their café. Or visit the Visitor Centre, from which; in the breeding season, there are spectacular views of the seabird colonies. The reserve is especially important for its breeding choughs, with their nine pairs representing 2% of the UK population. The RSPB maintaining the heathland and farmland to provide suitable nesting and feeding conditions for this rare bird.

For more information and opening times visit their website.

As someone with an interest in audio recording of wildlife, I have to say that the Chough has the most incredible of all British bird calls - Far beyond the capabilities of the most sophisicated synthesizer.

I didn't know there were Choughs at South Stack - it will save me a trip to the far reaches of the wilds of the Moelwyn Mountains.
