Flora on the Dunes and around Llyn Maelog
 
flower in dunes
The sand dunes have a special beauty of their own. From the month of May, they are adorned with a variety of wild flowers. Wild pansy, sea holly and sea spurge grow among the marram grass.

In the dune slacks, near the A4080 main road, wild orchids show their beauty in July.

The dunes are rich with birdlife. Skylarks, stonechats, swifts, Goldfinch, Greenfinch etc. 
The lake also attracts many birds, so there is plenty to occupy the keen birdwatcher.

gorse bush in flower From March to June, the gorse on Anglesey is a wonder to behold. Everywhere, the golden yellow colours are ablaze and the strong coconut like scent wafts through the air.
