Backwater on Cors Caron in July, Ceredigion
This is the scene from the bird-hide, looking north-north-west across a backwater of the Afon Teifi, possibly partly caused by peat digging. Beyond the nearby tree is a slightly higher boggy embankment (Cors Caron is a raised bog) in front of which flows the river, from right to left.

There are places where birch and willow trees are becoming established, especially near where peat was formerly dug. Although such small areas of scrub are good for wildlife, the spread of such areas is controlled to prevent the wetland drying out and the land becoming woodland. The bog is a harsh environment for them, so some trees seem to be short-lived. There are several dead trees on the embankment mentioned, more clearly seen on Nigel's spring image.
