Brynarth is host to an abundance of wildlife. Various Birdwatching Clubs have stayed with us and in our grounds alone they’ve spotted all the usuals plus Greater Spotted Woodpecker, Nuthatch, Brambling, Redstart, as well as regular flypasts by Red Kites, successfully re-populating this area of Mid Wales.

We are well located for easy access to many Nature Reserves:

Cors Ian Nature Reserve (formally Cors Brynarth-bach) is 400 yards from Brynarth and is a very natural site. Out on the mire are stonechat, whinchat, reed bunting, meadow pipit and willow warbler. In the green lane and wooded areas other nesting birds include redstart, pied flycatcher and nuthatch. Overhead kite, buzzard, raven and kestrel are on the lookout for any betraying movement. At night tawny and barn owl quarter the mire and on the ground polecat, weasel, stoat, badger, hedgehog, fox and otter prowl! Bats hunt the many beautiful moths recorded on the reserve. Several ponds have been dug to increase open water habitat for the water voles and from the viewing platform you can watch dragonflies and damselflies dance above the water.

Coed Rheidol National Nature Reserve is a fantastic place to see spectacular landscapes and wildlife.
