MNA Coach Trip South Stack 9th June 2018

Fabulous visit to South Stack RSPB reserve with some lucky members viewing Orcas! As well as the tiers of nesting Guillemots, Razorbills, Kittewakes, Fulmars etc. there was plenty of activity from Choughs and a whole host of minibeasts and wildflowers. Here’s a few pics from the day.
