We’ve spent several days clearing brambles at Coed Maidie and Rhos Glyn yr Helyg. On both reserves large clumps were growing in the middle of the meadows.

The very windy weather had taken its toll at Rhos Glandenys and several trees had fallen over so we spent a surprisingly warm sunny day clearing these up.

Aberystwyth University students have built two new bridges, two benches and started a new loop path at Coed Penglanowen. We spent a day finishing off the new path and clearing a large fallen tree.

Several days have been spent by both the weekday and weekend volunteers clearing a new path at Cwm Clettwr too. It links two dead end paths at the east side of the reserve. It is pretty steep in places but makes a good circular walk through the heather.

We’ve also had our first dormousey session to check and clean the boxes and replace the lids (made by North Ceredigion volunteers) on 30 of the older ones. As expected no dormice were seen this time.
