Designated in 1952, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is more than just a beautiful patchwork quilt of seaside landscapes, as it holds a wealth of habitats and biodiversity to explore. Taking the themes of shore, maritime and island life, we search out the birds, blooms and beasts to be found at this time of year. There will be a clear emphasis upon helping develop your identification skills and experience, but not at the expense of understanding the roles of these living things within their environment. Whether you are a seasoned natural historian or have just ‘caught the bug,’ you should find plenty to keep you enthralled. Each of the days will involve a moderate level of walking, so you should have a moderate level of fitness, but be reassured that we will for the most part stick to well-maintained paths in the beautiful South Pembrokeshire countryside.

Optional evening activities will seek to complement a day’s events through activities like bat watching, moth trapping and walks around the Orielton estate. And so you may come to appreciate why Ronald Lockley made this his home.
