    What makes an RSPB Volunteer?

    Within the RSPB volunteers are an important part of the day to day running of all aspects of this wonderful charity. From working on reserves, administration, people engagment to working in the shops and cafes, without volunteers we wouldn't be able to continue giving nature a home. Here at RSPB South Stack we recently had an awards ceremony to celebrate the hard work put in by our volunteers over the years, which for some has been many!

    All a flutter and wonderful Reptiles at South Stack

    The team here at RSPB South Stack have been enjoying the sunshine and so have the wildlife. Last week an adder slithered up to the visitor centre, a rare treat to see these secretive reptiles up close.

Although venomous, these snakes are non aggressive only attacking when provoked or if trodden on. Adders hibernate between September and March, with most activity occurring around April time when Males look for a mate. Unlike other reptiles, adders give...

Our Shepherd Pete Godfrey will be taking the sheep up onto the mountain each morning and directing them around the mountain. During this time, we will be moving the sheep along the...

For those of you that have visited us over the last two months, you may have been some of the lucky few to catch a glimpse of our peregrine falcon nest. We were lucky enough to follow the chick’s progress right from hatching to fledging on Thursday 19 June. Both adults and chick are still being seen in the area as the parents continue to feed the chick while it learns to hunt. Call into the visitor centre to see the wonderful photograph of the young falcon taken by regular volunteer...

    Stay out late for Big Wild Sleepout

    It was a great start to half term week with both our seabirds for beginners and optics events drawing in the crowds and getting people closer to the wildlife here at RSPB South Stack Cliffs. Guillemots, razorbills, puffins, shags, kittiwakes, and fulmars were some of the wonderful seabirds we learnt about on our seabird walk, and the retail team were helping the public with expert knowledge on the various binoculars and telescopes for sale. Excitement is building at the reserve for our next event: Big Wild Sleepout: An evening of Wildlife. This is the second year the RSPB is running Big Wild Sleepout...
