Those who wish to take advantage of Anglesey’s ‘Dark Skies’ will be amazed at the myriad of stars and galaxies visible on clear nights. Cerrig Cottages are also close to RAF Anglesey which will be of interest to aviation enthusiasts or those relishing the thought of watching the Red Arrows practise their spectacular aerobatic displays.
Cerrig Cottages are an ideal ornithologists’ holiday location, with over 65 species of birds recorded by the wildlife-loving cottage owners in the past year, including large flocks of lapwing, curlew, golden plover, skylark, wheatear, stonechat, three species of owl, peregrine falcon, the charismatic chough and even a booming bittern. Stoats live in the garden walls, there are newts and dragonflies in the pond, and otters have recently been seen in Llyn Traffwll at the bottom of the paddock. The owners are encouraging all form of wildlife with native wildflower planting over their three-acre garden, and have so far recorded seventeen species of butterfly.
