See wildlife in mid Wales- spring and summer
Stretching from Offa's Dyke in the east to the Cambrian mountains in the west, and lying between the much busier areas of Snowdonia to the north and the Brecon Beacons to the south, Mid Wales is Secret Wales- a wide remote area where wild life abounds.
With mountains, riversides, and Wales' own Lake District, the Elan Valley, to explore, along with interesting market towns, there is a habitat for everyone here.
Watch the Red Kites being fed at Gigrin Farm or spot an otter along the Wye or the Teme. See badgers from a purpose built hide at Nannerth Farm. Visit Erwood Station Craft Centre and follow the riverside Nature Trail.
For walks in mid Wales, see Leaping Stiles or the Knighton website. There are some brilliant cycle routes too. And for an inspiring demonstration of all things friendly to the environment visit the Centre for Alternative Technology.
