Cors Caron Nature Reserve

This one is looking over Cors Caron nature reserve near Tregaron on the edge of the Cambrian Mountains. It is made up of three raised bogs. A wonderful place to see wildlife and packed full of history too! There are board walks to take you into the bog with several hides and information boards with a history of the area in the larger hide.

You can also learn more in the Kite Centre in Tregaron about the history of the peat cutting that took place on the bog and about the people living in the area.

Cors Caron is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and a wetland of international importance (Ramsar site).

Snow has arrived!

I would have loved to have got some photos of the Cambrian Mountains however not possible to get close enough safely today so stuck to the valley, here is one of the river Aeron and some sheep in the upper Aeron Valley. The sky was still full of snow and very grey so I avoided too many with sky in.

Snow on the way..

Only had a few minutes but managed to take some photos on the way out of Aberystwyth of the snow covered Cambrian's. Also got to play with my wide angle lens, the view the other way was better but wrong time of day as sun was completely in the wrong place, never mind!

Much more snow forecast for tomorrow which is good and bad, good for photos, bad as the roads will be un drivable as there are two very steep hills between me and the Cambrian's so I think I'll have to see what I can get closer to home!
