Puffin head Hornoya 2015

Atlantic Puffins are always a thrill to enjoy on our Best of Anglesey Birdwatching Trips.



It is so good to be back sharing wonderful birds with wonderful people in beautiful places and this week has been very busy indeed. Three Best of Anglesey Birdwatching Trips took place 14th – 17th June and each of the tours produced amazing birds in stunning scenery. Super views of the “classic” Anglesey birds were enjoyed including Atlantic Puffins, Black Guillemots, Red-billed Chough and three species of terns – Sandwich, Common and Arctic. As always with bird watching every day is different and always throws up surprises and the three Anglesey tours all did that! People often ask us “don’t you get bored watching birds every day?” and the answer is always no! Every day is unique and each trip throws up surprises and new things – the reason we love running Birdwatching Trips tours so much.


Red-billed Chough are another star attraction of our "Best of Anglesey" Birdwatching Trips tours.



On the 14th of June the trip got off to a perfect start a Peregrine and a pair of Red-billed Chough seen as we stepped from the car at the very first stop and this set the scene for the day – birds showing off where they should be! A sighting of four Marsh Harriers in the air together was a real thrill for Anglesey still rare birds here in North Wales.

On the 15th of June a real thrill was seeing a rare Roseate Tern amongst the Sandwich, Common and Arctic Terns a first sighting of this species in 2021 for us. We were also thrilled to see seven Red Kites on Anglesey a species that is very scarce on the island so a big movement of these raptors must have been underway. On the 16th of June the weather was poor in the morning with some heavy rain but the birds still showed off. Luckily an afternoon visit to RSPB South Stack allowed us all to enjoy the amazing seabird city in the dry and enjoy incredible close views of Red-billed Chough.


Always great to enjoy super views of a resquested bird on our Birdwatching Trips tours - Spotted Flycatcher.



A change of the 17th of June with a “Best of North Wales” tour and it was a beautiful day. First stop was the Great Orme where seabirds including Black Guillemots and a pair of wonderful Red-billed Chough. Then two birds our guests had asked to see Spotted Flycatcher and Common Redstart both enjoyed really well with close long views. Then into the uplands for a complete change of birds and habitats – North Wales has so much to offer come and see!

Avocets and reeds

We are looking forward to exploring Suffolk and enjoying beautiful Avocets.



Today the 18th of June we are getting ready for a “Tour for Two” to Suffolk on the east coast of England an area rich is birds and some iconic nature reserves to enjoy. Our two guests asked us to put the tour together and of course we have loved the chance to plan a really exciting trip with potential a huge number of birds to enjoy!
