Black Guillemots at Holyhead

Are there still black guillemots at the harbour at Holyhead, and if so whereabouts is the best place to see them? There's a chance I may be having a trip to Anglesey sometime soon and I'm hoping to see them if possible.

Yes there are Pete, several were seen by a mate a couple of days ago. Try the fish quay/long stay car park (bear right at the entrance to the port and follow the fencing round on your left til you can get to the waters edge.

Should be easy from there...they feed in the harbour mouth but watch for them flying in to the "dock" too...
