We're off to Chirk for the Bank Holiday weekend and was wondering about good sites/areas to travel too.

Many thanks

Hi Di

Check out this website about a reserve near Ellesmere in Shropshire, which is only 15 miles or so from Chirk. I've never been there myself but I intend to give it a try when I'm next in the area ...

http://www.woodlanereserve.co.uk/

Ellesmere itself is a pleasant enough town with with a big lake, of the same name, which attracts loads of wildfowl and other birds and the Llangollen canal is very close to the town.

There's probably plenty of other places near Chirk which, no doubt, other, more local, members will tell you about!

Enjoy your weekend. Hope the weather stays fine.

Hi Mike

Many thanks for the link, I'll give it a go. The caravan sites usually have a good supply of local information but as usual, the wonderful birders on this site are always obliging to share their knowledge :t:

Thanks again

You can't go wrong at the RSPB Conwy - great site just down the A5 from Chirk - don't forget to go to Eamon's Chippy in nearby Llandudno Junction,
when you're finished, for the best Fish n Chip cafe in Wales !

Also, see the Raptors and Grouse on the Panorama near Llangollen
