Spring is a great time to get out and about. Trees are coming into leaf; spring flowers are blooming and the woodland birds are very active.
So we’ve put together our Top 5 Favourite Things About Spring, and if you’re looking to get away this Spring check out the fabulous glamping accommodation at Nyth Robin, or our well-kept touring pitches.
Dyfi Wildlife Centre & Osprey Project
Spring is THE best time to visit as the Ospreys migrate back from warmer climes for breeding. Plus, there’s a great visitors centre where you can find out more about the Ospreys and local wildlife including beavers which were recently introduced. Find out more.
Wild spring flowers are a firm favourite at Nyth Robin. Look closely at the woodland floor to find some of the small, but perfectly formed, wildflowers such as sorrel, celandine & violets. And you can’t mention spring flowers without talking about fabulous bluebells. Around late April/ May our woodlands roll out their bluebell carpet, which is always a glorious sight!
Birds are busy, busy, busy right now, so it’s a great time to get up a bit earlier and listen to the dawn chorus. And at Nyth Robin you don’t have to go far to hear it, just roll out of bed, grab a cuppa, and go for a walk in our woods – we’ve plenty of places to just sit and listen to the birds sing their beautiful songs.
Or even better, book a stay in one of our glamping bell tents, and you won’t even have to get out of bed (but you may get woken up early by the chirping birds!)
The Welsh hills are alive with lambs right now, so it’s a why not pull on your boots and go for a hike. You won’t have to go far to find some lambs gambolling and skipping in the fields.
RSPB Reserve – Ynsishir
There’s always something to see at the RSPB Reserve and in springtime you might see breeding waders including lapwing and redshank in the wetland areas. Grasshopper warblers and water rail lurk in the reeds. And the woods are busy with breeding pied flycatchers, wood warblers and redstarts. Don’t forget your binoculars!
