Llandegfedd Reservoir

Main Sighting: Darren James
I've noticed quite a few wondering about access to Llandegfedd Res - I run Llandegfedd Reservoir Wildlife Community on Facebook and know all access points so if anyone is wondering, please message me via my Website www.gavinvella.co.uk or just give me a call on . 07889184282 and I'll explain best I can on how you can make the most of the Res. It's been a hard year for access due to the developments but it isn't impossible and I'd love to see more people down there to see the wildlife.
