    Signs of Spring at South Stack

    The weather is finally warming up and the Spring birds are starting to arrive. Up to five thousand guillemots can often be seen on the cliffs - they have been coming and going since January but won't stay permanently until they start breeding sometime in April.

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...

    Conservation Grazing at South Stack

    Hi Everyone, For the past few years from September to November we've had a flock of sheep grazing Holyhead Mountain as part of our close shepherding conservation grazing programme.

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...
