Wildflowers & Insects

All the country lanes are home to great swathes of seasonal Primroses, Celandines, Violets and Bluebells with the delicate Wood Anemones featuring in virtually every wooded area. Cowslips are a common sight here as are a number of orchids and uncommon Vetches. The uncommon Sea Holly thrives in the coastal sand dunes and pink swathes of thrift grace the cliff-tops.

Wildflowers found commonly on Llyn

Craggy hills and the surrounding moor land provide a superb show of heather towards the late summer, which offers a spectacular contrast with the late bloom of the gorse. The clean air, warm climate and rich vegetation provides a favourable habitat for insects with butterflies such as the common Meadow Brown, Red Admiral and Tortoiseshell, thriving alongside the Dark Green Fritillary and the rare Marsh Fritillary. The marshy areas of the region provide an ideal habitat for the colourful Dragonflies.
