A good spot to view wildlife with binoculars on loan to use. There were members of the RSPB there to answer any questions and encourage the youngsters. Pleasant spot to spend a while.

Worth the drive out, remote, quiet & beautiful. Nature doing what nature does best. As with many places in Anglesey parking is free for Blue badge holders which I find amazing & v helpful.
