Site Description
11/12 acres at 1200ft. The top of our land joins Banc y Celyn common ie moorland. We have unimproved pasture which we have been trying to manage for wildflowers, some hedgerows, some woodland which includes a stand of big Sitka spruce, larch and some mixed woodland and quite a big pond in what was a quarry. The pond may be very low as it tends to dry up over the summer months. It had water in all year last year (2019) (though the level dropped) but the year before (2018) it did dry up.
Many species of birds including curlew, mammals, amphibians, butterflies, moth and plants.
