Defra granted us permission to recommence habitat management at Rhydymwyn in September.

Defra granted Wild Ground permission to recommence habitat management at the reserve in September, to prioritise ensuring the wildlife areas would be safe and accessible ahead of the site reopening to visitors. The Woodland Trail was checked and required work to re-establish the footpath, as it had become overgrown during the closure period, which coincided with the peak vegetation growing season. The bracken and brambles were doing their best to completely take over the reserve. 

Once all areas have been made safe we will begin the annual grassland management, before moving on to the Typha pulling season, mostly in the Wetland pond.  We look forward to the site re-opening for visitors and it will be a huge help to us when we can welcome volunteers back to Rhydymwyn.
