Tregaron Bog (Cors Caron)Satellite View
Centred on the small [but interesting] town of Tregaron. In Winter, it is not unusual to be able to see the best part of 100 Red Kite [for the Feeding Station, enquire in the town: October to March]. Breeding birds include Canada and Greylag Geese, all the commoner ducks, Hen and Marsh Harriers [most years], many warblers, finches, both pipits and of course, a number of pairs of Kite. Wigeon, etc., over-winter, with the occasional group northern swans.
Ynyshir RSPB ReserveWebsite
Just off the A487, North of Aberystwyth, six miles South of Machynlleth. An unusual RSPB reserve in that it combines a western woodland, with all the associated birds [see Dinas, above] with a wetland: Breeding R-b Mergansers, Goosanders, Shelduck, Canada and Greylag Geese [feral], a few [declining] waders, etc.. Winter: Greenland White-fronted Geese, a few Whoopers; ducks and waders galore. Uncommon migrants regular; rarities from time to time; Kites increasing. Nearby Borth Bog [SN 620 910] is also well worth a visit, especially in winter.
Number of bird species: 292
