Wild Wales at Campbell's Cottage

Campbell’s Cottage, surrounded by 200 acres of National Nature Reserve, is a great place to get close to wildlife. Whether it’s wild goats trampling through the bluebells, woodpeckers feeding their young or mother otter teaching her offspring to catch fish; you never know what you might see.  Some visitors come for the birds (great for pied flycatchers, redstarts, nuthatches and yellowhammers) others for bats (we’ve got a greater horseshoe) or for moths – in one week an enthusiast identified 180 different species of moth in the cottage garden.

Just in case you don’t see what you’re looking for, we’ve provided a copy of the Wild Wales DVD box set presented by Iolo Williams. The third DVD covers north Wales and ends with spectacular footage of the Maentwrog osprey diving into the Dwyryd estuary. After several attempts, he’s a bit young and inexperienced, he catches and repositions a fish mid flight, to be head first aero dynamic. He then flies at eye level past Portmeirion’s visitors seemingly oblivious to the natural spectacle.
