Home » Attractions » Wildlife Spotting in Pembrokeshire



The coast of Pembrokeshire is home to some fascinating creatures, and staying in one of the Pembrokeshire cottages that are available all year round is a great way to see them.

Taking a boat ride, or even just walking along the coast, can net you views of puffins, gulls, hen harriers, kestrels, buzzards, snipes, Barn, Little and Short-eared owls, thrushes, Redpoll, Buntings and loads more. What birds you’ll see depends on the time of year, as many will follow their migratory route, but things like the owls, kestrels and buzzards are year-round favourites.

It’s even possible to see all these during just a short cottage break in Wales by taking a trip on a boat to one of the islands along the coast. Skomer island in particular can offer glimpses of a huge variety of birds, and even a breeding colony of seals!

So, if you’re a fan of seeing nature in its natural place, Pembrokeshire could well be the place for you.
