Bluebells in March, the woods have been covered in the emerging shoots of bluebells for some time now but seeing a few bursting into flower last week was one of the earliest sightings of these evocative species. Other spring flowers out now to be enjoed include celedines, primroses and wood anemones. On the wing enjoring the wamrth of the sun in sheltered spots along the rides are Brimstone, red admiral, and  peacock butterflies. As for feathered arrivals the reserve is full of the song of the chiff-chaff with black cap, sand martin and swallows passing through. Ospreys have been flying through the area and in the last couple of days our neighboughs at the Dyfi osprey project have welcomed back "Monty". Good views to be had from marian mawr and saltings along our blue route of thes birds flying and fishing up and down th eriver. Peregrine and goshawk along with red kite and buzzard are also other raptors that have been enjoed in the past week too. What will be in next?

We are now on our Summer opening times with the Centre open everyday from 9am-5pm reserve open Dawn-Dusk.
