Lots of different types of birds live in and visit the area including wildfowl and waders. The meadows around the bird hide are on level terrain and support a wide variety of wildflowers, including orchids, which carpet the meadows during the summer months.

Finding the Hide
There are two routes to the bird hide:
- Normal Route
The route from the car park at Llangasty Church passes through 3 narrow kissing gates. This is a level and gentle 766 yard (700 metre) walk across meadows, a small bit of woodland and short sections of boardwalk over the wettest areas.
- Disabled Route
If you are unable to walk far or you use a wheelchair, there is a route which allows cars to get closer to the bird hide. This route should only be used during the drier times of the year, with help needed to open the 2 large gates to the slipway. There is a gently- sloping, bumpy but wide grass path which leads to the ramp up to the bird hide itself.
If you wish to use this route please contact the National Park warden Service for more details. Go to  Web: National Park warden Service
