Anglesey Fens Living Landscape

Cors Goch nature reserve - Chris Wynne

The complex geology of limestone and coarse sandstone in the west of Anglesey supports fen habitat, which depends upon lime-rich water from springs feeding in from surrounding areas. These special habitats support rare species such as fly orchid, narrow-leaved marsh orchid, southern damselfly and medicinal leech.

This wild fen habitat and its abundant wildlife was once extensive on Anglesey but much has been lost and what remains is fragmented, undervalued and vulnerable to aerial pollution, pollution from agriculture and inappropriate management.

To ensure the long-term survival of these fens we manage Cors Goch nature reserve and work with partners and landholders to influence land management to help ensure complementary and connected natural habitats surround the Anglesey Fens. More about this scheme can be found here ...
