Bird Rock (Craig Y Deryn)

Our Sunday walk was to the foot of Bird Rock, which stands 760ft overlooking the Dysynni Valley and is home to the many Cormorants that nest there.
This craggy rock is said to be the only inland nesting place for the Cormorant in the British Isles.
Hundreds of years ago, the sea-water of Cardigan Bay stretched inland covering the valley floor and from those ancient times and generations on, these birds haven never forsaken their rock, hence its name. When they have young, its fascinating to watch their flight out to sea, returning with fish to feed their babies.
