Tegfan’s wi-fi connection will allow you to explore local sightings and benefit from local birders’ knowledge of the area. This guide to Dinas Island bird life comes from their web-site. (See blogroll)
Ten minutes or so to the east of Fishguard, Dinas Island has great cliff scenery, an excellent circular walk and good birding.
Turn off the A487 at Dinas Cross and park in the public car parks at Pwllgwaelod (SN003402) or Cwm-yr-Eglwys (SN016401) at either end of the “neck” of Dinas Island (which is not an island at all but a large circular headland). See map. Toilets are available at both locations.
At Cwm-yr-Eglwys there are views across Newport Bay and Divers, Grebes and Scoter are regular here in winter. At Pwllgwaelod the view is across Fishguard Bay and, again, Divers and Grebes are regular in winter. From either location the c.3mile circular walk around the “island” has great views but is very steep in places. Peregrine and Chough are usually seen and at Needle Rock there is a small colony of Guillemots and Razorbills. The valley across the neck of the island has thick cover and is well worth a look, particularly during the spring and autumn.

Of course, people staying at Tegfan won’t need the car parking information. Dinas Island is within easy walking distance of ‘home’.
