Powys to Swansea

Hi All

I am driving from Oswestry to Swansea next week, is there anywhere not far from the main route where I can see Red Grouse (or even Black Grouse) please? Not seen either since the 1990s (although not tried so hard!).

Thanks

Rob

Hi Rob. Can't help with grouse - sorry. I find them a real pain to pick up here. My suggestion was that if you're going to Swansea then perhaps a visit to Penclacwyyd WWT would be worthwhile. There's a long staying Lesser Yellow Legs there at the moment though it can occassionally go for a wander.

It's approx. 8 miles further West than Swansea.

Thanks for the thought, unfortunately I won't have time to go west as after the meeting I have to drive to Penzance (so kind of west!)
