The mouth of the Conwy estuary has wide banks of golden sands but a short walk upstream leads to the Conwy mudflats, stretching from Deganwy through the cob past the Conwy RSPB nature reserve and on as far as Tal-y-cafn. If you are walking the All Wales Path alongside the Conwy estuary at low tide then you will get fine views of the Conwy mudflats. Mudflats are often perceived as dirty smelly areas - prime sites for redevelopment as marinas, barrages and land reclaim. However mudflats including the Conwy estuary mudflats are part of the most wildlife rich habitat in Wales. Once the tide recedes the Conwy estuary mudflats fill with all kinds of wading birds, from lapwing, heron, shellduck, oyster catchers and cormorant to name just a few.
