Mrs G has returned for the 16th successive year!

Look out for a video of her return later today.

Bywyd Gwyllt Glaslyn Wildlife is located in the heart of a Welsh-speaking community in North Wales. We like to promote the Welsh language as much as we can, and since many of our volunteers are Welsh learners, we thought our followers might like to learn a few words too! Introducing...


This week's word has to be:
Gwalch y Pysgod (Osprey)

Other recorded names for the osprey have included:
Gwalch y môr (Sea hawk)
Gwalch y weilgi (Ocean hawk)
Pysgod-walch (Fish hawk)
Môr eryr (Sea eagle)

Why not try and use 'gwalch y pysgod' in conversation the next time you see us at the Visitor Centre!
