A strong north westerly wind is blowing as we move into February and waves are crashing over the top of the breakwater in Holyhead. Plenty of birds are sheltering in the safety of the harbour, great northern diver, red-throated diver, great crested grebe, red-breasted merganser, guillemot, razorbill and at least 8 black guillemots which are […]

A storm overnight on the 18th had trees and power lines down. It was a long hard drive back from Norfolk to Long Eaton as I was feeling very unwell. I dropped Pete off at home and made my way back to Birmingham. An early departure the next morning at 0620hrs to try and avoid […]
I have been birding for close on 50 years now and with my 70th birthday coming up this year, I decided that I would take time off from everything and spend a whole year on a Grand Birding Tour of Britain. Over the years I have travelled from Lands End to John O’Groats in search […]
Recent customers and those that follow our social media will know that we’ve been alluding to winding down our services at Christmas this year. Here’s a few words from Ken to explain why: “I have decided to take time-out and spend a whole year on a ‘birding’ tour of Britain. I am hoping to visit […]
It’s another world down there, believe me! Although I’m primarily from a bird-watching background I do have a general interest in all aspects of natural history. That is why I am also interested in rock-pooling and the shoreline. It’s a great way for someone like me to get a taster of what’s beneath the sea. […]
Sea rowing is one of the nicest ways to observe marine life. One of the delights of outings in the Celtic Longboats of Beaumaris Rowing Club is the close encounters with many types of sea birds found in the Menai Strait. As we row from the slipway at Beaumaris, terns are found perching on the […]
The first nation’s people of British Columbia in Canada have a saying that “When the tide goes out the table is set” and I strongly suspect that the ancient Druids of Anglesey would have had a similar saying had they not been massacred by the invading Romans in AD 77. There’s a very good reason […]
For a number of years now it has been my privilege to lead a geological walk as part of Anglesey Marine Week. I say “privilege” for two reasons: first, because Marine Week is a fantastic event reminding us of the importance of Anglesey’s coastal waters; and secondly, because it is a great feeling to represent […]
One of our favourite trips here at Sea Kayaking Anglesey is to get out to the Skerries to see the Arctic Terns ‘dreading’. The Skerries is the largest breeding ground of Arctic terns in the country with over 2,000 breeding pairs nesting there last year. The islands, which are owned by Trinity House are a […]
Ethical buying, including of seafood, has come a long way, and people and businesses are getting to ‘know their fish’ and increasingly looking for seafood that is either sustainably assessed or rated well or certified as such which is great to see. People might not know though that in a similar way to fruit and […]
