Saturday's Trip - Cors Caron National Nature Reserve

This was at Tregaron, so first we took a trip into the Red Kite Centre and Museum, lots of stuff to see, lovely enthusiastic lady volunteer to tell you all about things to do in the area, she was a gem!

So then onto the Nature Reserve, built on and around an ancient peat bog. Again, will post the pics straight from the card, but it was another great place, been past it lots of times but never stopped by and walked it. There's a mile of boardwalk over the marsh, saw lots of insects but not many birds until the car park area, swallows in the nest and the lovely little fledgling Spotted Flycatcher being fed by its parent, thanks for the help from the bird forum again!

Here's the website address again if you want to know more about the place, worth a visit, and it's free!
