POINT LYNAS WILDLIFE

Porpoises live almost permanently off the end of the headland and can easily be seen on calmer days. If you are very lucky you might see the dolphins and porpoises feeding with gannets diving into the sea with them. Much more rare are visits from Pilot and Minke whales, reputedly there are also Orcas / Killer Whales to be seen!

Point Lynas is a real hotspot for bird watchers. The main attraction is for migrating birds when the winds blow from the north. However, the headland is also home to a number of species which spend most of the year here. The rarest is the Chough, which is still supposed to be Britain’s rarest seabird. When we bought the headland ten years ago there was one nesting pair on the headland and the overgrown headland meant they were never to be seen feeding.
Since the introduction of pony grazing some 5 years ago, the breeding population has increased to three pairs and they are a regular sight feeding in close proximity to people. Offspring have been spotted as far afield as Aberdaron and Penmaenmawr.

One of our favourite birds is the family of ravens who nest every year on the cliffs, whilst they can be a nuisance to other nesting birds, they are real characters. We have a family of kestrels that live here all year round as well. A family of Peregrine falcons nest on the cliffs nearby and are frequent visitors, chasing smaller seabirds and visiting racing pigeons.

One of the greatest spectacles in the summer is the visiting gannets. When they see the porpoises or dolphins feeding, they dive from high in the sky and crash into the sea to catch fish. They swim for some distance under the water to catch their prey.
