Wildlife in Powys
Welcome to a place so teeming with wildlife that some kind of magical encounter is virtually guaranteed...
...And don't worry, we'll take you badger watching, bug hunting, bat detecting and teach you how to track wild animals.
We'll help you discover places like the Elan Valley - 70 square miles of river, reservoir and ancient forest containing 12 different Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) Or the RSPB's 24,000 - acre nature reserve at Lake Vyrnwy, stronghold of the peregrine falcon.
You can see our most iconic bird of prey in breathtaking aerial action, nearly every single day at the Red Kite Feeding Station, Gigrin Farm near Rhayader.
What's more between April and August you can meet Monty the Osprey and his friends. The Dyfi Osprey Project near Machynlleth will provide you with telescopes, binoculars and live television pictures.
The Project now has a new state of the art observatory platform, where you can see, hear and experience wildlife like never before. Follow the boardwalk to the observatory and enjoy the incredible views of a full 360 panoramic.
