Welcoming our new team members at Coed Y Parc


Welcoming our new team members at Coed Y Parc

Despite the difficult past few months, and lockdown having an impact on all of our lives, we are pleased to say that some of our new Project workers have been able to get started! RSPB Nature Reserve Coed y Parc, near Dolgellau, was grazed by three Highland cattle for the first time last summer. Now two new cattle have taken on the task and have been seen tucking in with enjoyment! Ceitidh, the red one, is a younger lady and is here with her brother. Until last week, this young man didn’t have a name, but following some fantastic suggestions we are happy to introduce…

Derw (Welsh for Oak)

They will be living at Coed y Parc until around the end of October. There is a permissive path through Coed y Parc, for you to enjoy the peace and beauty of the #CelticRainforest. However if you bring your dog with you, please remember to keep them under appropriate control and to pick up and dispose of any dog mess in the appropriate manner, as it can pose a health hazard to Ceitidh and Derw.

To discover more about why and how we graze the Celtic Rainforests, book your space on our upcoming webinars – “Why do Celtic Rainforests need managed grazing?” and “How we graze Celtic Rainforests for integrated farming and habitat restoration?
