Grey Pond

Noted as an Important Bird Area by BirdLife International, Grey Pond attracts tourists to the area to view the specific species of wet land birds that make the pond their home.

Located at the east end of Anguilla, Grey Pond is surrounded by limestone slopes to the east and sand dunes to the north east.

White-cheeked Pintails, Snowy Plovers, Willets, Green-throated Caribs, Caribbean Elaenias, and Black-necked Stilts make their homes at Grey Pond throughout the year, while Least Terns use the spot as their nesting grounds between April and September.
