Half-term Wildlife Wander

Loading Map....

Description

Join our ‘Living Seas’ team for a 2-3 hour stroll from New Quay and learn more about the coastal wildlife of Cardigan Bay. As well as a chance of seeing marine mammals (bottlenose dolphin, harbour porpoise and grey seal) the area is also great for bird-watching, with nesting guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes in spring and early summer, and chough and peregrine all year round. There is a variety of other wildlife to discover too, from common lizards to coastal butterflies.

Ideal for beginners or more experienced wildlife-watchers alike. A good introduction to the area for visitors or an opportunity to find out more about the wildlife on your doorstop. Families welcome.

The route is mainly flat, using good paths, but there is a short steep section up to the coast path from New Quay. The path also passes close to the cliff-edge in one section, but an alternative route is available.

Bring suitable footwear and outdoor clothing for the weather, plus a drink.

More information: 01545 560224 (bookings helpful, but not essential). No charge, but donations towards the work of the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre are welcome.
