Glan y Môr Elias Local Nature Reserve is home to roosting seabirds. Thousands of birds fly here to rest. The high tide is best when huge flocks of wigeon, teal and pintail, oystercatchers and godwits, greenshanks, and little egrets can be found here. Sometimes such species of birds like innets, wheatears, firecrests and goldcrests just dwell in the grass or on the rocks. It is also a good spot for black-tailed godwits, greenshanks, and little egrets. Beyond that, the sewage works is a traditional place for wintering firecrests, goldcrests, chiffchaffs, and grey wagtails. For a better observation of birds, we recommend you take binoculars or a telescope!
