This is truly a nature reserve for all seasons, particularly if your interest in is wild birds. Autumn brings migrants and various species of widlfowl that overwinter on the lakes and the river. Snipe, Greenshanks, Green & Wood Sandpipers,Whooper Swans, Wigeon and Tufted Duck.
Of the 170 or so bird species that have been recorded at Cors Caron, more than 40 breed there.
This NNR is not just about birds, though, and if plants are your main interest there is plenty to see here.
In high summer Cors Caron buzzes with insects, and in particular, dragonflies.
Polecats live here and Otters roam the waterways. Other mammals that live there include Harvest Mice and Water Voles.
Running in and around the reserve is the River Teifi, which supports interesting species of fish, otters and aquatic plants.
The reserve boasts excellent access facilities, including a boardwalk, viewing hides, dedicated car parking and seating.
There are also fully accessible toilets at the car park.
