Site Details

The largest natural lake in south Wales, attracting good numbers of wintering wildfowl including pochard, tufted duck, goldeneye, teal, shoveler, and pintail. The lake is relatively shallow and nutrient-rich, with vegetated edges good for breeding water birds and reed warblers. Great crested grebes breed here, and water rails are frequently heard near the bird hide. This is just the sort of site to turn up unusual birds among the commoner species.
