See wildlife in mid Wales- autumn and winter
Mid Wales is quieter and more subdued during the winter months, but there is still much to see and do.
With mountains, riversides, and Wales' own Lake District, the Elan Valley, to explore, along with interesting market towns, there is a habitat for everyone here.
Watch the Red Kites being fed at Gigrin Farm or spot an otter along the Wye or the Teme. See badgers from a purpose built hide at Nannerth Farm. Visit Erwood Station Craft Centre and follow the Nature Trail.
For walks in mid Wales, see our own page of downloadable walks, or Leaping Stiles or the Knighton website. There are some brilliant cycle routes too. And for an inspiring demonstration of all things friendly to the environment visit the Centre for Alternative Technology.
