There’s nothing quite like a still Winter’s eve, so why not join the team at RSPB South Stack this November for an evening celebrating our Welsh Dark Skies? We will be joined by our local Dark Skies Officer, who will be giving a talk on the importance of our Dark Skies for us as humans and biodiversity. We will also have an Astrophotography presentation and demonstration by a local award-winning photographer. We will venture out onto the reserve for some moongazing to end the evening.
Please note that this has already taken place on 23/11/2022
