On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Porth Oer – Aberdaron

As you go around the headland you will be in the teeth of the wind and see how the rough seas have sculpted this landscape. The cliffs along this section of coast offer the best homes for interesting and rare wildlife. This is the stronghold of the emblem of the Llŷn Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the chough, which you can recognise from its harsh call, red legs and beak. It's a bird-watchers' paradise anywhere at 'finisterre', Wales' 'land's end'. Look out for the chough, as well as the kittiwakes, kestrels, puffins, stone chats, guillemots, and manx shearwaters. From Uwchmynydd you will see Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli) once a destination for pilgrims who according to legend made three visits to Bardsey which was equivalent to one pilgrimage to Rome. This small island is reputed to be the resting place for 20,000 saints! Turning eastwards you will arrive at the quiet village of Aberdaron, the last village west on the Llŷn Peninsula.
