Tour For Two Best Of North Wales 28 To 30 September 2021




Kingfisher a bird to brighten any day and we enjoyed wonderful views.



Roger and Rita are a really lovely couple that have joined us for many tours in the past so it was great to welcome them back again for a Tour for Two. They stayed at a lovely B&B close to our base here in Llandudno so easy for pick up and drop offs.

Day One – the bird watching began straight away at the nearby Great Orme and enjoyed lots of birds including Red-billed Chough. We then visited a beautiful viewpoint in the Conwy Valley and then enjoyed a lovely lunch before visiting nearby RSPB Conwy. We ended the day a Llanfairfechen watching lots of waders at their high-tide roost. Birds enjoyed on Day One included – Northern Pintail, Common Scoter, Goosander, Red-breasted Merganser, Bar-tailed Godwit, Black-tailed Godwit, Red Knot, Common Greenshank, Spotted Redshank, Red-billed Chough, European Stonechat.

Day Two – Anglesey on day two of Roger and Rita’s Tour for Two and we began at RSPB South Stack where the beautiful scenery was as good as the birds. Next we called in at Holyhead Harbour before visiting Beddmanarch Bay. A really lovely lunch was enjoyed at Catch 22 in the village of Valley. We spent the afternoon exploring the area around Cemlyn Bay and popped into RSPB Cors Ddyga on the way home.

Birds enjoyed on Day Two included Common Ringed Plover, Ruddy Turnstone, Common Snipe, Black Guillemot, Black-legged Kittiwake, Sandwich Tern, Manx Shearwater, Northern Gannet, Peregrine Falcon, Red-billed Chough, European Stonechat, Northern Wheatear, Rock Pipit, Red-throated Diver, Arctic Tern.

Day Three – The weather was pretty grim sadly with very heavy showers and gale force winds but we didn’t give up and still enjoyed a lot of birds. We began the day in a lovely hide where we had shelter and superb views of an estuary and a wooded pool from the same spot! Here we were thrilled to have prolonged close views of a Kingfisher – the perfect bird for a grey wet morning! Next we headed west to Dinas Dinlle for welcome coffee and cake and then explored the area around Foryd Bay stopping for a lovely lunch nearby. We made a few stops on the way back to Llandudno that allowed us to enjoy one of Roger and Rita’s most wanted birds Dippers!

Birds enjoyed on Day Three included Pale-bellied Brent Geese, Eurasian Wigeon (huge numbers), Northern Pintail, Goosander, European Golden Plover, Northern Lapwing, Common Greenshank, Mediterranean Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Sandwich Tern, Peregrine, White-throated Dipper, Grey Wagtail, Rock Pipit, Common Guillemot, Kingfisher, Skylark – not bad for a bad with awful weather!

Huge thanks to Roger and Rita for their lovey company and for treating us to a delicious meal at the Queens Head pub on the second night looking forward to sharing more birds them both again.
