We were inspired to visit Ynys Hir after seeing it on Springwatch. When we arrived we were greeted by a very helpful young lady on reception who informed us that a supervised walk was leaving at 2pm. We decided that was for us and met up with Roger our RSPB guide - he was very informative and we had an enjoyable 2 1/2 hour walk round the reserve stopping periodically to listen to Roger's amusing stories. It was a very windy day so not many birds about but we were thrilled to see two Redstarts. Roger also showed us the tractor shed which was used as the Springwatch Studio and we saw two Egrets from that famous window.
The bird hide was very interesting too and we could have sat there all day watching the ducks and geese - and I was lucky to see a Skylark! We shall definately go again and next time take a picnic - there are some lovely picnic tables with a fabulous view.
