Dyfi Osprey Project
Cors Dyfi (Dyfi bog) is a wonderful little nature reserve that is teaming with wildlife for most of the year. This is where the Dyfi Osprey Project is situated. Once estuary, reclaimed grazing, then conifer plantation and finally wildlife-rich wetland, the land at Cors Dyfi has seen many changes over the last few hundred years. Today the reserve is a healthy mixture of bog, swamp, wet woodland and scrub supporting a plethora of animals and plants, including the magnificent Osprey, which bred on the reserve for the first time in 2011.
A mixture of Welsh oak woodland with wet grassland and saltmarshes. In the spring, the ground is carpeted in flowers and birdsong fills the air. You might see flycatchers and redstarts emerging from the nestboxes. Summer brings wading birds, such as lapwings and redshanks and some very special butterflies too. Then, in the colder months, ducks and geese move in. Feast your eyes from any of our seven hides and look out for birds of prey.
A wonderful place to see weird and wonderful plants, flowers, butterflies and birds. It's one of the remaining fragments of raised bog which once would have covered much of the adjacent Mawddach Estuary. With more than 130 species of plants recorded, there are colourful displays through the year such as marsh marigold and yellow flag in the spring and hemp agrimony, meadowsweet and ragged robin through the summer. There are also many specialised ditch plants such as bog bean and greater spearwort.
You should be able to see and hear pied flycatchers and redstarts, while dippers nest by the lake and rocky streams. Great crested grebes and goosanders bob on the water and, above you, ravens, buzzards and, perhaps a peregrine, soar in the skies. Although the hillside makes for difficult terrain, one of the hides in the reserve is accessible by wheelchair. There's plenty for children too, including nestbox trails, as well as bat and owl walks. And if you're new to birdwatching, regular events are held throughout the summer.
There is plenty of adventure to be had for adrenaline junkies to calmer pursuits such as pony trekking along sandy beaches.

Corris Mine Explorers
