I'm staying near Dolgellau for a week in early August. Obviously, I'll be visiting Borth for the shearwaters. Any suggestions for other places to go birding (or insecting, or botanising) anywhere in Ceredigion or Gwynedd would be much appreciated.
I am told not being a botanist that it is renowned for it's ferns, mosses etc. As a birder it has the full suite of welsh woodland specialties, though you might be a little late for some, and the best place I know for all three woodpecker species.
At the pub in Llanbedr turn for Cwm Bychan, and keep going. When you get to the farm on the right selling free range eggs you have gone 250 meters to far. Its on the right hand side of the river just before this farm.
