Conwy RSPB ReserveConwy, Snowdonia

Conwy RSPB Reserve, Snowdonia, North Wales

This Nature Reserve has a fairly unique setting, in that it is not as remote as some of the Reserves we feature. From its placement along the banks of the Conwy Estuary you can see towards Conwy with a fantastic view of the castle nestled at the forefront of the Snowdonia mountains - the views really are truly spectacular! The Reserve offers a unique vantage point and a view not often seen up the estuary towards Conwy. There is also a wonderful waterside coffee shop for refreshments after all that bird spotting - don't forget the binoculars!


An ideal Nature Reserve for the whole family, with pushchair friendly paths, plenty of hides to set up spotting and a playscape for the little ones. There are also friendly experts on hand to help from the visitor's centre. There have been around 200 different species of bird reported from this Reserve, offering up plenty of potential for spotting lots of different birds! Not only for bird lovers, the reserve runs numerous events throughout the year, focused on family fun and making the most of this beautiful spot and all of the fantastic nature that goes along with it!


Some of the repeat species spotted here are Black-tailed godwits, Lapwings, various birds from the warbler family, Shelducks, Water rail, Whitethroat, the fairly common Grey heron and the rarer Little egret, the buzzard, bullfinch and goldfinch.
