Thinking of visiting the above in autumn with a small dog, will i enjoy all facilities with him?
What can i expect to see then?
Anybody please reply

a long time ago I went there in late autumn- Borth was IMHO a better place at that season.

Ynys-hir has a no dog's allowed policy, you may wish to ask for further details with the reserve staff by calling 01654 700222 or email the staff at
The reserve page is linked here but there are plenty of other places in the surrounding area that offer great wildlife viewing including Borth bog and Ynyslas dunes up the coast from Borth, the coast path itself has great potential for wildlife watching in the autumn and you are a within easy reach of Bwlch Nant-y-Arian red kite feeding station, Cors Caron NNR and the Dyfi osprey project.

just seen on Surfbirds that there is a Gull Billed Tern at Borth
Borth/Ynyslas are a magnet for rarities as well as spectacular sightings of seabirds...in recent weeks they've had thousands of manx shearwaters and hundreds of gannets hunting within a few metres of the shorebreak, plus some impressive wader counts on the estuary...blog here for more info.
