There is a new beast roaming on Anglesey! The new Softrak multi-purpose, all terrain vehicle is helping the RSPB carry out essential work that was not possible before.
The RSPB’s Malltraeth reserve covers 273 ha of existing and developing reedbeds, marshes, wet grassland and small pools. It forms part of the Malltraeth Marsh (Cors Ddyga) Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), which is particularly important for its ditch fauna and flora, and a range of breeding wetland birds.
This new machine will enable the RSPB to support the reserve’s lapwing colony to breed and flourish, to attract bitterns back to Wales as a breeding bird, and to help sustain a wide variety of wetland plants.
