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.
