Bird Watching and Conservation

We are exceptionally lucky in our location being peaceful and quiet and surrounded by farm lands and lakes/marshland.

We are actively developing lake and marshland walks with bird watching facilities for ornithology fans.

As always where wildlife is concerned we have to tread a fine line between access and disturbance and we do our best to ensure that this is achieved

We would welcome input and involvement in developing Bodowyr as a mini wild bird sanctuary

West coast Anglesey is well known for its beautiful beaches and cliffs and those who know the area realise that we are we are within easy reach of many RSPB locations such as South Stack, Cemlyn, Malltraeth Marshes and Ynys y Fydlyn.

Some of our campers hang feeders outside their caravans and spend all day observing our feathered friends.

Bodowyr has many resident species but is also a regular stopping off point for a number of visitors.

Some of the birds which have been seen are: buzzards, stock doves, little egrets, reed buntings, pheasants, sparrow hawks, siskins, tufted ducks, great spotted woodpeckers, greylag geese, lesser redpoll, moorhens, pochard ducks, lapwings, plovers, owls, herons, redwings and swallows, which seem to arrive earlier every year.
