Pwll Penarth Nature Reserve

About

This reserve was once part of the sewage farm next door! Birds, who seem to be attracted to such places, were already regular visitors, so when the Environment Agency and the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust remodelled the site in 1996, it was easy to encourage the birds to stay. Shallow margins attract waders, whilst deeper water allows ducks and geese dabbling room! Islands and special gravel 'cliffs' were created to allow birds safe places to nest.

Birds can be spotted at any time of year, but don’t miss Spring/Summer for breeding activity and Autumn/Winter for the chance to spot something unusual. Keep your eyes open for Otter, as the Newtown area is one of the best places in the area to see them.
