Remarkable nature reserve on the edge of Cardiff with a wide selection of wildlife and plants in a variety of habitats including Kingfishers of course plus some shy visitors like Water Rail, Snipe and even a Bittern.read more
In my view this is the shining star in Cardiff's attractions an amazing place to explore, see the kingfishers, get up close to the rabbits and small birds such as the nut hatches, robins, blue tits etc (take a little bag of seed with you for the posts and they soon show), sit and watch the herons gracefully flying in for lunch or just to take a gentle stroll or a bike ride, Sitting in one of the two hides you literally are a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday city life and even better it's all for free !. This place is amazing please please Cardiff Council allow the Rangers and Friends to keep doing thier amazing work and do not lose this stunning site Xread more
