Cors Ian (Ceredigion)
Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales
This is an upland valley mire. It has a good population of dragonflies with species including the Keeled Skimmer and Golden-ringed Dragonfly. It also has many bird species and a small population of water voles.
The reserve is located along small lanes and is difficult to find. It is recommended that a map is used to locate it. From Aberystwyth, take the A487 to Cardigan, turn left on to the A485 after 3 miles, in Llanfarian. In the village of Llanilar, turn left at the roundabout on to the B4575. After about 3 miles, continue straight on, onto a narrow lane (rather than crossing the river on the right– Afon Ystwyth), follow this lane for about 1 mile then turn right (following the cycle path signs), continue on this lane for just over a mile, just passed Brynarth Guest House (on the right), the reserve is on the left on a sharp corner after a dip in the road. There is a small parking area at the entrance to the reserve. There is a footpath running through the site and permissive paths lead to the top of the hill. This site is not accessible to wheelchairs and push chairs.
