Cors Bodgynydd nature reserve is a mosaic of open water, streams, wetland, acidic grassland and heathland. This diversity is a result of variation in the underlying geology and the influence of mining activities in the past. The reserve is dominated by purple moor-grass, bog asphodel, bog myrtle, and bottle sedge.
