You might see weeds, but I see wild flowers

Monday I took a trip out to South Stack, on Anglesey.

A beautiful sunny day, and a quick stop off to take a few pictures as I went by Capel Curig.

Anglesey has some great places to visit, and one of them has to be a trip to South Stack.


Puffins can be seen here, but I was a bit too early to see them. Probably still out at sea, and on their way. Some of the breeding birds have been arriving though; quite a few Razorbills, and Guillemots.


The real stars for me though, are the small breeding colony of Chough.


A few hours spent wandering around, and then it was off to Breakwater Country Park, about 10 minutes away. Always worth a visit here too. More Chough to see, amongst other birds, and a very nice coastal walk along the cliffs to Holyhead.


My final destination for the day was Llanfairfechan, along the north coast of Wales. I park the car on the promenade, and then walk along the coastal path that takes in a couple of designated nature reserves. Salt marsh, and coast, a perfect setting for some great birds, and Monday was no exception. From one of the bird hides at Morfa Madryn, I spotted a couple of Greenshank.


A great long full day out in the sun. Perfect.


  1. Nice to see the landscapes of Wales.
