"Ynys-hir is at its absolute peak of perfection at the moment with the woodlands bursting with song and the tiny cheeps of newborn chicks".
"With the BBC's Springwatch series on our TV screens this week, it has reminded me to tell you about the pair of swallows nesting in the gent's toilet on the reserve - right above the cistern of all places".
"They seem to be unfazed by the constant male traffic so fingers crossed the chicks won't mind too much either!"
"The nightjar and glow worm walks this month are proving very popular and are almost fully booked.
So if you want to see and hear the magical Dyfi valley after dark, get yourself booked in ASAP".
"There is a walk on Saturday, 19 June, so visit the reserve website for more information or to book yourself a spot".
"We also have new arrivals on the reserve in the form of a foal from one of the rescue ponies brought here last autumn and another one on the way".
