The shingle bar separates the sea from the tidal lagoon. On the right is Bryn Aber, the remote house that dominates the western end of the reserve which was bought by Captain Vivian Hewitt in the 1930's. His interest in birds led him to construct the first dam and weir at Cemlyn, replacing tidal saltmarsh with a large and permanent lagoon which he intended as a refuge for wildfowl. He also had a scheme to nurture an area of woodland within the grounds of Bryn Aber, to attract smaller birds. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
