WILDLIFE

The area is a paradise for wildlife, ranging from the majestic Red Kite soaring above the hills, to the famous population of Bottlenose Dolphins in Cardigan Bay
Nature Reserves

Bird watchers should head to the unique raised peat bogs of Cors Caron near Tregaron, to take in the sight of wading birds, such as Curlew, Red Shank and Snipe, plus rarer visitors such as the Water Rail. Buzzards, Red Kites and Hen Harriers are plentiful hunting over the boggy pools.

The Teifi Marshes Wildlife Reserve near Cardigan is another great place to visit, with a a range of gentle walks taking in to water meadows of the Teifi, together with the dramatic ravine further upstream towards Cilgerran. As well as birds and small mammals, you may even spot the herd of Water Buffalo!

The Bottlenose Dolphins of Cardigan Bay are a fine sight. The best way to encouter them is on a boat trip from New Quay or Aberaeron, but they can sometimes be seen closer to shore. Porpoises are also common, while Seals bask on the secluded coves between New Quay and Aberporth.

Closer to home, the fields around the holiday cottages teem with wildlife, Squirrels and Rabbits compete with our Chickens and Geese for a share of the food. The birds to be seen include Buzzard, Red Kite, an (elusive!) Owl, Crow, Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Magpie, Jay, Blackbird, Swallow, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Wagtail, Robin and even the rare Redstart. A small flock of Shetland and Soay sheep is dwarfed by the prime breeding cattle on the adjacent meadows.
