We are pleased to announce that the majority of our nature reserves are currently open to visitors (Cwm y Wydden, Coed Pendugwm, Cors Dyfi and Morfa Dyfi will remain closed). Our Reserves Officer, Rob Haigh, has been busy carrying out essential maintenance and habitat management, but we are still trying to catch up, whilst continuing to work under restrictions, so please bear with us - we would ask for your help in reporting anything you see on the reserves that you think we should be made aware of. And, of course, any exciting wildlife records too! Some restrictions may still apply on some sites – please see the relevant reserve page before your visit. We also ask that visitors adhere to social distancing guidance at all times.
Wild and mysterious - for over 400 years there has been a continuous cover of trees in this quiet part of the Welsh countryside, creating a micro jungle, packed with wildlife.
