Today saw the latest in the groups pilot habitat surveys. This was aimed at studying ‘Ffridd’ habitat – the land between the hill tops and the agricultural land below. The area chosen was the ffridd at Gilfach NR – the slopes above the car park at marteg bridge. a full account will appear in the ‘ffridd page’ within the Biodiversity part of this site.
Highlight was the discovery of a forester moth – a scarce moth for Radnorshire. Also found were a number of Bombus Monticola (mountain bumblebee) and some nice green hairstreak butterflies.
