For some birds, Llangorse Lake is the equivalent of a service station stop on a motorway. Migrating birds are able to refuel and rest their tired wings before continuing along their journey. Other birds, such as Canada geese and grey herons, stay all year round!
A bird hide was constructed on the side of the lake using traditional materials, and it features a roof thatched with water reed from Wales. It was built over a 3 month period by young people supported The Prince’s Foundation. It was officially opened by HRH The Prince of Wales.
Why not take a walk around to the hide to see the construction for yourself, and watch the birds?
Llangorse Lake with its reedy shores and shallows is also an excellent habitat for dragonflies. A number of species have been recorded, including the Golden Ringed Dragonfly.
