The Wildlife and Nature Found in Conwy
IMAGE

From an array of different rare bird species to uniquely beautiful butterflies and even wild goats roaming Llandudno - Conwy County has such interesting and vast wildlife. The area, being situated close to the National Park Snowdonia, shares its population with many animals, insects and birds you wouldn’t usually find so civilisation. You can feel calm and at one with nature - and then access amenities like restaurants Conwy easily too. 


Where you can see the coast and the mountains...


Conwy is special, as the areas highest point is the Irish sea and coastline. Visiting here you can get a panoramic view of the blue, and upon turning around, you’ll most likely see mountains and hills. 




Where can I see seals and dolphins in Conwy?


Conwy’s coastline is home to many interesting inhabitants, including the Grey seals which reside here. At various locations; the small shores of the Great Orme, and Angel Bay in Penrhyn Bay to name a few, you can watch the seals from a distance. 


Seals like to breed in the caves around the headland or at the foot of the many cliffs - so if you’re out to spot some, this is the situation to look out for. Either take a boat trip or a stroll, but keep well away as not to disturb them. 


In recent years, more dolphins have been spotted on the coast of Conwy County. Both Llandudno and Kimmel Bay have seen groups of more than 20 bottlenose dolphins visiting, and a few have been spotted relaxing in the marinas in the estuary.




Where can I go bird watching in Conwy?


For birds, the RSPB Nature Reserve in Conwy is a must. Well over 200 different bird species have been spotted here previously, with the numbers ever rising. You not only get to see the wildlife, but also the gorgeous scene of the estuary and Conwy Castle. The reserve usually has an exciting programme of events, child-friendly activities, and guided educational walks. 


Another great location for birds amongst other wildlife is Pwllycrochan Woods in Colwyn Bay. This nature reserve is full of thick woodland, a mix of British native trees and exotic species. This, of course, is an attractive habitat for foxes, badgers, birds of prey and owls. 




Upon the Denbigh Moors, the vast untouched land is home to an abundance of wildlife - teamed with beautiful scenery of the reservoirs and lakes.
