This afternoon I received a call from a friend because there was a seal pup on the beach in Aberystwyth and he thought it needed attention. I’m no seal expert, but I do have experience of marine mammals from my time working for Sea Watch Foundation. I hoped I would turn up, see a happy […]

The Anglesey sea cliffs provide Adventure climbing with a capital A. On Ynys Gybi (Holy Isle), from Rhoscolyn to North Stack there is a wealth of spectacular and challenging opportunities for the climber. A veritable smorgasbord of bewildering rock formations; convoluted geological intrusions, vast sea caves and arches, sea stacks and promontories, all constantly evolving […]

As well as our Living Seas Wales work, which aims to enthuse the public, as well as school and community groups about our marine wildlife, we have the “Our Wild Coast” project, which works more intensely with groups of young people across the […]

Coastal areas are diverse habitats. This interface between marine and terrestrial habitats supports groups of animals happiest in water and land, respectively. It also represents home for a few specialised and robust species that choose to have the best of both worlds by living in the extreme intertidal habitats. This aggregation of marine, terrestrial and intertidal […]
What is it that draws us to the coast? For me it taps into all of the senses; the wide open spaces of the summer sky reflected in the deep blue sea with an unbroken horizon, the smell of the salty air, the feel of the warm, soft sand between my toes and the hypnotic […]
If you’ve stepped foot on the Anglesey coast path, felt the sand through your toes at Ynys Llanddwyn or Traeth Bychan, or seen glittering mackerel lifted from the rocks at Moelfre or Tŷ Croes then you’ll know precisely why we celebrate Anglesey’s surrounding seas each summer. I am not a native of the island, I […]
On the 15th February I am heading back to the East Midlands and join Pete James to visit Holme Pierrepont to see the spotted sandpiper, a vagrant from North America which probably arrived last autumn but was only identified last month when Neil Glenn made a visit here. The bird showed well for us on […]
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 […]
