Spend your perfect day at RSPB Ynys-hir, in the heart of the Dyfi Estuary – a serene wetland paradise and a real treat for lovers of wildlife. Trails will you take you through Welsh oak woodlands, reedbeds and down to the saltmarsh. In spring, the ground is carpeted in flowers, and birdsong fills the air. You might see pied flycatchers and redstarts emerging from the nestboxes. Summer brings wading birds, such as lapwings and redshanks, and some very special butterflies too. Then in the colder months, ducks and geese move in. Pick up an explorer kit and have a go at pond dipping – children will have so much fun discovering all kinds of interesting creatures. After visiting the hides – find the ideal spot for a picnic or relax in our visitor centre, with a cup of coffee and home-made cakes.

Author's Review

Only a hop skip and a jump away from the Snowdonia National Park, is RSPB Ynys-hir. I would always suggest that when visiting an RSPB reserve, that you wear not only suitable clothing, but more importantly footwear, and I cannot stress this anymore than here at Ynys-hir. If I were you, and before you attempt to visit a particular reserve, to check the very informative RSPB website, which will always give you an up to date idea of both the weather, and if any diversions to trails that have recently been put into place. I guarantee you that once you’ve visited Ynys-hir, you will want to visit it time and time again, such is the magic of this reserve.
