Car trip 7 July Cemlyn Bay

Our next car trip willbe on 7 July to Cemlyn Bay, Anglesey LL67 0DY. This is approximately a 2½ hour drive, 127 miles each way, M56, A494 & A55. We will meet up in the west side of the Bay car park at 10.30 am (There is a car park on the east side but it is a 500m shingle walk away). The car park does not offer any toilet facilities so please stop on route. Walking boots and a packed lunch recommended.

Cemlyn Bay is a real wildlife heaven with a spectacular seabird colony, we can view the lake islands from the shingle beach at relatively close quarters. There are large numbers of Common terns and we should have good views of Arctic and Sandwich terns plus occasionally there is a Roseate tern mixed in amongst the crowd.

After viewing the breeding colony we will proceed around the headland  looking for Shag, Yellow Wagtail, Red Breasted Merganser and whatever other hidden gems we can find along the shore or on the adjacent pastures/hedgerows.

We would generally recommend you leave home not later than 7.30 am allowing time for a rest break on route. If anyone is a little late its not difficult to find us, we’ll be in the middle of the shingle beach for the first hour of the trip.
