An early start is a must to see one of Britain’s rarest birds. The sound of a lekking Black Grouse at dawn on a very remote moorland is just magical. Other species here include the Hen Harrier, Red Grouse, Merlin, Cuckoo, Whinchat and the Grasshopper Warbler. We then head off to a pine forest for possible Goshawk and Wales’ main stronghold for Red Squirrel. Good birds here include the Crossbill, Redstart, Wood Warbler, and Siskin. The afternoon will be spent in the Conwy Valley in search of Hawfinch, Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Pied Flycatcher and the Marsh Tit.
Foot of Snowdonia.
A walk to some old quarries will give us superb views of Britain’s rarest crow, the Chough. There will also be Raven, Peregrine and Ring Ouzel at this location. Close by, a woodland walk will give us Redstart, Pied Flycatcher, Wood Warbler and the Marsh Tit. We shall then proceed on to heath land for singing Yellowhammers and Cuckoo. A nearby lake will give fantastic views of the Goosander from about six feet away, ideal for the photographer.
Immerse yourself in the most beautiful scenery the British Isles has to offer. Welcome to Snowdonia, land of myths and legends, with the National Park covering over 800 square miles. Where else can you find beautiful valleys, snow capped mountains, stunning lakes and rivers, not to mention the unrivalled beaches?
