Ffrwd Farm Mire (Carmarthenshire)
This site is owned and managed by the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales. It is notified as part of the Gwernedd Pembre SSSI. This site has a range of habitats, for dragonflies there is a fen, reedbed, and open water. Recent management has seen a pond dug and scrub controlled. Dragonfly species include the Hairy Dragonfly and Variable Damselfly.
Ffrwd farm mire is approximately 7km east of Llanelli, just north of Pembrey. There are 3 access points; the gate near the southern corner adjoining the B4317 road, the northern corner off a minor road near the level crossing of a disused railway near Ty Mawr farm, and the right of way on the towpath of the disused Ashburnham canal. The reserve is open at all times and viewing can be done from public footpaths and a newly installed boardwalk that leads to the open area of the wetland.
