Gower – Spring
Gower in the spring and summer is a fantastic experience! Immerse yourself into the world of returning migrants, rare plants and emerging butterflies.
Day begins at 9am at Southgate Car Park, tour lasts until 4pm.
Suitable for children, due to the sandy bunkers along the paths, it will be unsuitable for regular wheelchair users, scooters may be adaptable – contact us first!
We begin our day by meeting at the Southgate car park to gather as a group and meet each other. After our initial meeting, the walk through the dunes and cliff faces by Three Cliffs Bay begins by looking for newly emerged butterflies and migrant birds newly arriving to the Gower such as Garden Warblers, Chiffchaffs, Willow Warblers and Blackcaps. Arriving at Three Cliffs, we will stop for a bit of seawatching, looking for sea birds passing offshore which can include Guillemots, Razorbills, Puffins, Gannets, Fulmars and gulls.
After the walk through the cliffs, we will make our way to Pennard Head where we will check the bushes for migrants as we go before arriving at a location special for Yellow-witlow Grass, a rare species of plant in the UK and almost endemic to Wales. Whilst here, we will scan the valley for raptors and Chough among the trees, before beginning our return walk through the dunes.
