Scenic spot, great birds, excellent RSPB presentation Nov 25, 2010
Ellins Tower is a reserve owned by the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) on South Stack cliffs near Holyhead on the island of Anglessey. It is a very picturesque location near to the South Stack lighthouse.

Two of my favourite sea birds (gannets and puffins) as well as ravens and choughs among many others are to be seen here. Choughs were once called Cornish choughs but became extinct in Cornwall and were only found in Wales. Now they ae slowly re-establishing themselves in Cornwall as well.

Telescopes and binoculars were available for use at the Visitors' Centre and staff were very wiling to ensure that we saw the top seasonal views. There was also a live showing on scren from the RSPB's cameras, which showed nesting choughs and puffins.

People with disabilities would not be able to get everywhere but they would be able to see plenty.
