In Pembrokeshire we have 14 nature reserves including the significant reserve at Teifi Marshes. Nathan Walton the Wildlife Trust Officer manages these with the assistance of volunteers from the area.

The suite of WTSWW’s nature reserves in Pembrokeshire includes some strikingly different kinds of woodland, and we’ve achieved some great successes in each.

Future work. Nathan has already been successful at securing funding for Pengelli and West Williamston through Better Woodlands for Wales, but these do not pay full costs, and further funds are sought to help us realise our aspirations for these sites.

In Pengelli, areas of trees have been identified for groupfell, to promote both structural diversity and create naturally regenerating glades. This is the start of a wider dream to fulfil a lengthy rotation within the woods, identifying areas to manage and areas to leave alone, providing assisted and natural management of the woodland.

Tracks and pathways are to be resurfaced where needed and new tracks constructed to aid extraction of felled timber.

In West Williamston, thinning of the ash and sycamore will provide greater habitat variety and allow more light to penetrate through to the woodland floor encouraging species such as common twayblade.
