The Conwy RSPB Reserve sits on the banks of the River Conwy in Conwy County, North Wales. This reserve was created following the construction of the Conwy road tunnel to provide a safe haven for waders at high tide throughout the year.
It has now become the most important site for birdwatchers on the North Wales coast, as lapwings, sedge warblers, reed warblers and water rail come to breed on the wetlands during the spring and summer. Extremely rare birds have also been spotted at the reserve, including the first terek sandpiper ever to be seen in Wales.
The bluethroat, black headed wagtail, marsh sandpiper and all three phalaropes have also visited the reserve.
All four hides at the reserve have disabled access, and the visitor centre offers education packs and a nature trail quiz for children.
Conwy RSPB Reserve has something to see throughout the year, and the autumn and winter bring the waders, wild fowl and starlings in the largest such roost in Wales. People come from miles around to be entertained by the shape-shifting dusk roost of starlings, and to see ducks and waders direct from Siberia.
