Cors Dyfi Nature Reserve


Cors Dyfi sits on land reclaimed from the  River Dyfi tidal Estuary, and during exceptionally high tides the site is still prone to flooding. Cors Dyfi is grazed by a small herd of water buffalo. The reserve contains a mix of habitats - open water, swamp, bog, wet woodland, scrub and gorse.

Wildlife Highlights: A pair of ospreys nested here in 2009, albeit unuccesfully. They are only the second known pair of ospreys in Wales. Breeding species include, reed bunting, snipe and nightjar. Dragonflies and damselflies such as the common darter and the emerald damselfly are common.

Location & Access:
 5 Kilometers south-west of Machynlleth on the A487 Abersytwyth road, just to the north of Dovey junction railway staton, and south of Morben Isaf caravan park. Limited parking is available on the road, and there is a track into the reserve. There is a short circular walk, all on boardwalk, which is suitable for wheelchairs.
