North Wales is a truly amazing location for birdwatching, taking in some wonderful habitats from the coasts to the uplands of Snowdonia, to forests and even islands like Bardsey. Over the years it has seen some wonderfully rare species turn up; Black Lark (2003) Summer Tanager (1957), Royal Tern (2018), Red-flanked Bluetail (2016), Black-throated Thursh (2016), Indigo Bunting (2013), Grey-tailed Tattler (1981), Greater Yellowlegs (1983) and Blackpoll Warbler (1976). Below are the lists of those who have seen species in the five vice-counties that make up North Wales.
