The goings on in and around Bridgend

Nature spotting in Bridgend County

Summer is here and the natural world is in full bloom. Here in Bridgend County we have some of the most amazing flora and fauna that Britain has to offer, not to mention a very rare orchid that was the subject of a recent hunt by the team at Countryfile magazine ( read about it here).

Kenfig _sunset

Kenfig National Nature Reserve - This is one of Wales' top sand-dune reserves, with a huge variety of  plants, birds and insects that depend on this coastal habitat for  survival. At the edge of the reserve is Kenfig Pool, Glamorgan's largest lake. Kenfig is home to imposing sand dunes which lead to the coast and Sker Point, as well as the rare Fen orchid which can be spotted during the summer months. 

Craig-y-parcau - a woodland area located along a steep slope of the Ogmore River. The top path through the woods forms part of the River Ogmore and Merthyr Mawr Circular Walk. Carpets of wildflowers line the attractive riverside path and there is plenty of opportunity for spotting Wood Anemone, Yellow Archangel and Wood Sorrel.

Frogs Wood Pond - The woodland here is mainly oak and ash, which provide ideal nesting places and foraging opportunities for woodland birds and wildflowers. The pond and wetland areas you'll come across as you explore the wood get very busy with wildlife in the summer months. Take some time to watch the insect activity near the pond - or go in search of the 'Keeper of the Pond' - part of the Natuer Keepers Quest.

Tremains Wood - Found at the heart of Brackla, this is a fantastic natural location surrounded by a housing development. This is a great place for children to explore the woodland, each marks with 'robin arrows' and information panels to help you spot a variety of trees, flowers and wildlife. Look out for the 'Keeper of the Wood'!
