Flintshire is home to some of North Wales' most important bird populations, not only the wildfowl on the Dee but also the wintering Twite population and the Little Tern colony in the summer. Over the years it has produced some great rarities including Broad-billed Sandpiper (2016), Richard's Pipit (2008), Long-billed Dowitcher (2010), Marsh Sandpiper (1990) and many more. Key sites include Connahs Quay Nature Reserve, Point of Ayr, and Nercwys.
