Did You Know?For some birds, Llangorse Lake is the equivalent of a service station stop on a motorway. Migrating birds are able to re-fuel, and rest their tired wings, before continuing along their journey.

Some birds stay all year round, such as Canada Geese and Grey Herons.

A bird hide has been constructed on the side of the lake made from traditional materials, and features a roof thatched with water reed from Wales. Why not take a walk over to the hide to look out for some of the birds?

The bird hide was officially opened by HRH The Prince of Wales.


Llangorse Lake, and its reedy shores and shallows, is an excellent habitat for dragonflies. A number of species have been recorded, including the Golden Ringed Dragonfly.
