About the reserve

Pwll Patti is an area that was once part of the old bed of the River Wye. The remaining oxbows now flood in the winter and provide a roost for over-wintering birds.

It is one of the largest roosts for wigeon in Mid Wales, who are joined by tufted duck, coot, mallard, little egret and teal.  Occassionally pochard, gadwall, green sandpiper and water pipit pay a visit.  The mute swan still stops by but less often seen are the Bewick's and whooper swan.
