About Anglesey Wildlife Walks

Anglesey Wildlife Walks is a small, locally based business which aims to encourage people to discover the astounding landscape beauty and abundance of wildlife found on the Isle of Anglesey. By offering you the opportunity to take a guided walk, we hope to give you a unique and authentic experience of the nature of Anglesey.

What We Offer

Guided Wildlife Walks for Individuals, Groups & Families
This service is primarily aimed at people who wish to discover and enjoy wildlife on Anglesey with the help of some local expertise. Wildlife watching made easy!

You can book a walk as an individual, group or as a family/families. We like to keep group size to a maximum of 8 people, to keep it small, friendly and personally tailored. We also believe that the quality of the experience is best with a small group and there is less disturbance to wildlife and environment.


Families with children are welcome. With a family of her own, the guide has plenty of experience and ideas to keep children interested and engaged while out walking.

There are a range of walks suggested in Our Walks section, which you can choose from. Alternatively you can contact us listing what you would especially like to see, or with a request for a bespoke walk in a different geographical area.

For more information and to book your walk, please contact us.

Therapeutic Walks – Mindfulness through Nature. (For individuals and groups).
The physical action of walking added to the mental and spiritual benefits of being outside in nature are a powerful combination. By focussing on the scenery, elements, wildlife or walking itself, you can forget your troubles and become much more mindful of the present moment. This can be a very refreshing experience. While all walks do this to some extent, these walks focus on quiet enjoyment and contemplation – more like a meditative experience.

For more information and to book your walk, please contact us.

School Groups/Educational
The guide holds the nationally recognised Walking Group Leader award qualifying the guide to lead parties of all ages in the countryside. The guide is also fully CRB checked and holds a current first aid certificate for working outdoors.

Anglesey Wildlife Walks can offer school groups a high quality, small group experience of nature, giving children a great opportunity to connect with the natural environment and learn many new skills. Naming plants and birds, learning which ones are edible and about their traditional uses can inspire children with a life-long interest in the natural environment.


The guide has many years experience working with school groups in through previous employment with the RSPB and in higher education. Recent work includes running nature walks for primary schools and Coleg Menai.

Caroline

I have over 20 years professional and voluntary experience in nature conservation and a lifetime spent exploring and observing nature. Qualifications include a degree in Geography and MSc in Rural Resource Management. I also hold the nationally recognised Walking Group Leader Award and have a current emergency First Aid Certificate. I am a full member of the Mountain Leader Training Association.

With thirteen years spent working for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds at the South Stack nature reserve on Anglesey, I can offer superb knowledge of the area and guide customers to the best wildlife view points.

I am experienced in organising and leading guided walks through my work as RSPB Visitor Officer. I moved to the island in 1997 and since then have walked extensively and immersed myself in the natural history of Anglesey.

As a volunteer and employee I have worked overseas in nature conservation and eco-tourism. In the UK I have worked in Land Management research, environmental consultancy and as a University lecturer, specialising in recreation management, ecology and eco-tourism.

Local Knowledge

I studied for my masters degree at Bangor University, where I started to explore the fantastic environment of North Wales. When I was researching my Msc thesis, I lived on Barsdsey Island (tiny island off the Llyn Peninsula) in the lighthouse, where I was captivated by the special wildlife, isolation and culture of Wales.

While working for the RSPB at South Stack I lived on the cliff top on the edge of the nature reserve for 13 years and was able to experience the amazing nature of the place on a daily basis.

I have spent the last 15 years walking Wales and have intimate knowledge of the area. I continue to explore with my young family which has added a new dimension to enjoying and appreciating nature.

I look forward to meeting you on one of our walks.
