Rare species

The coastline paths around Mynydd Mawr are a great place to see a number of rare species, such as golden hair lichen, spotted rock rose and the distinctive chough.

The chough with their red bill and legs are a member of the crow family. They fly along the cliffs showing off their mastery of flight with wonderful aerial displays of swooping and diving.
