The whole area is rich in wildlife with over 100 species of breeding birds, 35 mammals, 30 butterflies, 20 dragonflies and damselflies, and 450 flowering plants. The Red Kite was once down to one breeding pair in Great Britain in Cors Caron and is now wide spread in the area, and beautiful to watch. There are a few feeding stations for the Red Kite, the most notable being Bwlch Nant Yr Arian, just North of here on the A44 and Gigrin Farm, near Rhayder on the A470, which can attract up to 300 birds at feeding times.
