Wetlands and open water

Wetlands are the richest and most diverse habitats found in Wales and the Bannau Brycheiniog is no exception. The conditions found in various wetlands provide for literally thousands of different insects, plants, birds and mammals. The range of landforms in the National Park gives rise to various wetlands, from the fast flowing clear streams of the uplands, to the periodically flooded marshes of the slower flowing river valleys.
