You could be forgiven for thinking that Llandegfedd Reservoir is just about birds. Not the case, the reservoir and its surrounding habitats provide much more for the inquisitive naturalist, than a passage wader or feeding raptor. This summers warm, dry conditions has produced a drawdown zone ideal for plantlife that is hitherto inaccessible due to higher water levels and marginal scrub. I've not yet found anything that would excite hardcore botanists but the community of marginal plants is one that is becoming increasingly difficult to find in the vice county. The following collection of images were taken several weeks ago.
