May into June in Ceredigion

Here's an update from our conservation officer, Em Foot, based in Ceredigion;

It has been a pleasure to have some sunny, dry weather!

We continued removing young willows from another of the meadows at Rhos Pil Bach- more treepopping!

Rhos Glandenys had been quite badly affected by the winter storms so we had a lot of fallen trees and branches to clear off the grassland. We put in a short section of fence too to stop the horses escaping!

At Coed Maidie B Goddard we had to mend a stile and clear some of the paths of overgrown vegetation.

There were various jobs for us at Cwm Clettwr- new non-slip wire on the bridge (it is being used a lot!), fallen trees, broken signs…

We’ve cut the cliff top path at Penderi Cliffs, making it easier to access the wonderful hanging oak woodland.

This year’s bracken bashing and path clearance has started at Coed Simdde Lwyd but we’ll be back a few more times yet!

The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales are very grateful to the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery who have made all this work possible.

If you’d like to join our work parties, get fit and meet new people, contact Em:  e.foot@welshwildlife.org
