South Stack Cliffs

  • Spring has sprung!

    The recent sunshine has meant a bumper sightings list here at RSPB South Stack Cliffs here is an update of just some of the things you might see if you call in for a visit. Choughs Mr and Mrs Mousetrap have been seen going in and out of their nest a lot more frequently. We have a camera once again on the nest, this time in full colour. Pop in to the Visitor Centre or Ellin’s Tower to follow their progress. Auks There are more and more guillemots and razorbills on the cliffs now with the odd puffin being spotted as well. Saturday was a great day with approximately 4000 guillemots, a couple hundred razorbills and 3 puffins, compared with today’s (Sunday’s) bare cliffs. It is amazing when they decide to go out to sea they all go, leaving the people engagement team to tell unbelieving visitors that the cliffs were full with sea birds just the day before. Reptiles With a couple of nice sunny warm days on site this week we have lots of sightings of common lizards with a few people managing to see an adder basking on the steps down to Ellin’s tower. Be sure to look along the side of the paths to see if you can spot one of these secretive creatures. Wild flowers Our wild flower treasure hunt has seen lots of young budding naturalists hunt for the colourful spring flowers out on the reserve at the moment. Ones to look out for include thrift, spring squill, sea campion and lousewort to name a few. Other wildlife Some visitors were lucky enough to spot a small pod of harbour porpoises on Saturday. A red throated diver was seen flying past South Stack Island also. There are quite a few wheatears stone chats and swallows around over the reserve and can be easily seen when walking from the bottom car park.

  • We're migrating to a new facebook page.

    You've probably all noticed that we’re closing down our Conwy and South Stack Facebook pages and we have set up a new ‘RSPB North Wales’ page. We understand that some of you will be disappointed to see these pages go. Here are some questions that you might have about all this change... Why haven’t you just changed the page name? Unfortunately Facebook doesn't allow us to change the name of the page unless you have less than 200 fans. Therefore, we've set up some new pages What will happen to all my photos on this page? Please feel free to add your photos to our new pages – we’d love to see them on there! Unfortunately, once this page is closed, there will be no way to access photos on this page again. I’m only interested in what’s happening on my local reserve Our new structure will allow you to continue to receive all the latest news from Conwy and South Stack. It will also allow us to share news of other interesting stuff happening in your wider area. We don’t want you to miss out on news from your favourite places, so this new page will enable us to keep you fully up-to-date without you having to follow lots of different RSPB pages.
