The Dee Estuary - Point of Ayr RSPB is a nature reserve at Talacre at the mouth of the Dee estuary in North East Wales. Close by stands the Point of Ayr lighthouse, the Gronant and Talacre sand dunes and the wide stretches of sandy beach at Point of Ayr.<br><br> Bird watchers will appreciate visiting Point of Ayr and the Dee RSPB especially during the winter months, when, at high tide, the thousands of feeding birds are forced by the rising waters onto the salt marshes and closer to the shore. <br><br> The Talacre dunes nearby are also popular with bird watchers, and the beach offers possibilities for sighting migrating Terns, Gannets, Skuas, Leach's Petrel, Kittiwakes and other visitors to the Dee estuary and the Irish Sea. <br><br> Among the sand dunes themselves, and the marsh behind the Point of Ayr lighthouse, can be observed Whinchat, Wheatear, Stonechat, Skylark and various Warblers. Talacre Warren (between the end of Station Road and the lighthouse) is a particularly good place to see migrant birds.
