Bird Watching in Snowdonia
The Mawddach estuary is renowned for its bird life. Begin the day at Bryn Melyn with breakfast as you enjoy the wide variety of birds on our bird-feeder, conveniently situated just outside our dining room and lounge windows, (binoculars and identifying books provided).
Later on stroll down the hill to marvel at one of the great Welsh ‘airports’ for birds, with many rare avian visitors pausing to feed in the shallow waters of the estuary. Redshank, curlew, lapwing, assorted plover, dunlin and common sandpiper can all be seen, with winter being the best time of year for sighting the rarer species.
And don’t forget that the Glaslyn Osprey project is just 40 minute’s drive to the north, (open April to September).
As you enter Barmouth on the A496 from Dolgellau Panorama Road is the first road on the right and is off a sharp left hand bend. It climbs steeply with two hairpin bends as it runs around the Bae Abermaw hotel. Bryn Melyn will then come into view above the road to the left. Ignore the car park entrance and go straight past it, up the hill about 100 yards. Turn round at the next junction before coming back down the hill into our car park.
