The RSPB Conwy reserve, near Llandudno in north Wales, was created from the spoil from the construction works for the A55 Conwy tunnel and provides scrub, reed beds and pools next to the Conwy estuary.
I first visited the reserve in 1987, a year after it opened, and it still looked very much like a construction site, since then I have visited two and three times a year and the transformation is remarkable. Today, many species of birds, especially waders and wildfowl, can be watched feeding and roosting on the reserve, but also Buzzards and Ravens are often flying over the nearby woodlands.
Below is a list of species I have observed on visits in the spring, summer and autumn.
Great Black-backed Gull
Great Crested Grebe
Lesser Black-backed Gull
Little Ringed Plover
