Summer nature walks at Aberthaw nature reserve

Summer is finally upon us and to celebrate the Wildlife Trust will be leading another nature walk around the East Aberthaw nature reserve.

East Aberthaw nature reserve is located on the east side of Aberthaw Power Station. The site will be holding walks throughout the year on the third Monday of April, May, June, July and September - to introduce local residents and nature lovers into the wonders of the site’s unique ecology.

If you're enjoying Springwatch or keen to get involved in your local wildlife group, join the second walk of the year on 15 June. Particular attention will be made to looking for orchids as the Natural History Museum is asking the public to upload photographs of species from across the country on their website.

The walks are supported by RWE’s Aberthaw Power Station, who own the land that contains the saline lagoon, one of only four in Wales. The station also help to carefully manage the area to encourage and maintain the bio-diversity of habitats, flora and fauna.

The next walk is planned to start at 6pm, Monday 15 June at the bottom of Well Road and everyone is welcome to attend. Every level of interest is catered for; whatever your age, you can come to spot, photograph, ramble, amble or inquire.
