A small quiet field alongside our little river the Nant Cwm Cyffyng – it is sheltered by trees on the riverside and wild hedges on the other. A blaze of gold in the early spring with Dandelions followed by Meadow Buttercup, Lady’s Smock is coming back and Foxgloves make a wonderful show along the hedges in June and July, something I know of as Tom Thumb comes as bright yellow swathes later. All this is home to a myriad of Butterflies and Insects that busily go about their daily lives.
There is woodland on the hillside at the top end which in spring is filled with bluebells – wood anemones are beginning to spread among them too.
We have noted about 40 different birds even in our short time living here. We do feed them all year round and it is wonderful to see them bring the young to feed, Squirrels are quite happy to join in and are such characters to spend time watching.
