Llandegla Forest

We were off to Anglesey for a weekend break and it was whilst we were on the A525 road that we can across this site purely by accident it was the RSPB sign on the road side that drew us into the site for a coffee stop. The forest is mainly a Mountain bike centre but the RSPB do have a presence and have one of the biggest Black Grouse leks around [to late in the day for us to see them] plenty of forest trails for bike or walk so walk we did. We came across Meadow Pipits and Common Crossbill and the common forest stuff to early in the year for summer migrants, apparently it’s also a good place for Nightjars and Tree Pipits. On site there is a centre with cafe, toilets etc so the place could be worth checking out again at the right time of year, more info at Wildlife Extra [Website Link] and of course the RSPB [Website Link]
