RSPB Ynys Hir is on the south side of the Dyfi Estuary, near Machynlleth in mid-Wales. The habitats are diverse and include oak woodland, estuarine mudflats, wet pastures, farmland and bracken covered hills.
The estuary is internationally important for wintering wildfowl, especially Greenland White-fronted Geese, Barnacle Geese and thousands of Wigeon.
Birds of prey including Buzzards, Peregrine and Red Kite are regularly seen above the reserve.
Below is a list of species I saw on my only visit one autumn.
Great Black-backed Gull
