Spring is one of the prettiest seasons with blooming flowers and warming temperatures, Here in Wales Daffodils are dancing to the wind, daisies and dandelions making the meadows white and gold and early primrose hiding in the hedges ready to bloom, Swallows begin to arrive late March on wards having traveled the whole length of Africa from the southern tip to get to Wales, Spring sees countryside at its most beautiful and our wildlife at its wildest,

Wales’s rugged coastline, windswept islands and verdant valleys offer bountiful opportunities to spot the country’s endemic wildlife, which includes red kites, falcons, puffins, basking sharks, dolphins, orcas and whales (yes, whales in Wales). Top spots include: Puffin Island, The Skerries, Grassholm, Anglesey, Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons.  The Golden Eagle is set to return to Snowdonia after nearlly 200 years, a new wildlife project hopes to bring this beautiful Eagle back to Wales.
