Subject: Holy Island Bird Event
Just received this..,....
I hope you don’t mind me contacting you, I was given your email by Ben Stammers who said you might be interested in taking part or able to help promote an autumn bird event in Anglesey on the 5th of October. The event has been organised by the Anglesey AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) team to raise awareness of the AONB and the amazing bird life to be seen along the coast of Anglesey. We’re keen to get more birders involved so if you or anyone you know who might be interested in taking part please do get in touch. I’ve attached a poster with the event info and contact details for anyone wanting to find out more or to book. Any help in promoting this would be much appreciated!
Basically there will be 5 groups walking along the coastal footpath of Holy Island in 1 day, identifying and noting all the different bird species seen. Each group will have a member of staff and at least 1 or 2 good birders (hopefully more), and we’re hoping that members of the public will join us too whether they’re expert birders or just beginners. The groups will be as follows and are shown on the maps attached:
Group 1 – St Cybi’s Church to Four Mile Bridge (approx. 5 miles)
Group 2 – Four Mile Bridge to Rhoscolyn (Borthwen) (approx. 5 miles)
Group 3 – Rhoscolyn to Trearddur Bay (approx. 4.5 miles)
Group 4 – Trearddur Bay to South Stack (approx. 6.5 miles)
Group 5 – South Stack to St Cybi’s Church (approx. 5 miles)
We’ll be meeting at 8.30am at Breakwater Country Park before everyone sets off to do their walk, and then there’ll be a small buffet and a panad at Caffi’r Parc (Breakwater) at 4.30ish for a catch up and to discuss the days sightings.
If you would like to take part, is there any section you’d like to do? Otherwise, any help in promoting the event would be much appreciated!
