Wales is typically hill country with deep valleys, lakes, bogs and estuaries, rising to mountains in the north. Seabirds, particularly Manx Shearwaters and Storm Petrels breed in internationally important numbers on offshore islands such as Bardsey and Holyhead. Perhaps the most exciting county however is Pembroke with its immense Gannet colony on Grassholm, Puffins and other auks on Skokholm and Skomer and resident Choughs. Moorland counties hold remnant populations of Red Kite (before the wider introduction scheme across the United Kingdom), Merlins, Red and Black Grouse whilst Redstarts and Pied Flycatchers are a defining feature of the woodlands. Despite the paucity of birders, headlands such as Anglesey have delivered top-notch rarities to the British list.
