Cors Bodeilio National Nature Reserve (Anglesey)


This is another of Anglesey’s fens.  The reserve is designated as a SSSI and also, along with other areas, a SAC and Ramsar site.  This reserve is important due to its unique mire which lies in a shallow limestone valley.  There have been 15 species of dragonfly recorded here, including Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly, Variable Damselfly, Hairy Dragonfly and Keeled Skimmer.  There are also grasshopper warblers and medicinal leeches on the site.

A boardwalk stretches for 700 metres round the site, it is prone to flooding, so wear wellington boots!  There is a small car park with space for 6 vehicles.  This is off an unclassified road between the villages of Pentraeth and Talwrn.
