Teifi Marshes (Pembrokeshire)
Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales
The freshwater habitats include marshes and reedbeds and the River Pilau which is deep cut and narrow and runs through the marshes. There is also pasture and tidal mudbanks within the site. The site is home to 17 species of dragonfly. The site is part of the Afon Teifi SSSI and SAC and also part of the Coedmor NNR. Look out for the water buffalo who are grazing the reserve to keep the habitat in good condition!
This reserve is also home to the Welsh Wildlife Centre which is next to the River Teifi and overlooks the marshes. It has excellent facilities including a cafe, toilets and a shop. Check the website for opening hours.
