You’ve probably all noticed that we’re closing down our Lake Vyrnwy and Ynys Hir facebook pages and we have set up a new ‘RSPB Mid Wales’ page.
We understand that some of you will be disappointed to see these pages go.
Unfortunately Facebook doesn’t allow us to change the name of the page unless you have less than 200 fans. Therefore, we’ve set up some new pages
Please feel free to add your photos to our new pages – we’d love to see them on there! Unfortunately, once this page is closed, there will be no way to access photos on this page again.
Our new structure will allow you to continue to receive all the latest news from Ynys-hir and Lake Vyrnwy. It will also allow us to share news of other interesting stuff happening in your wider area.
We don’t want you to miss out on news from your favourite places, so this new page will enable us to keep you fully up-to-date without you having to follow lots of different RSPB pages.
The RSPB Lake Vyrnwy and RSPB Ynys Hir pages will be closed within two months – please become a fan of RSPB Mid Wales before then.
Thanks again for all your support and for following us for this long, please continue to follow us on our new page, we look forward to seeing you there!

Efallai y byddwch yn siomedig efo’r newidiadau yma, felly dyma rhai cwestiynau (wedi eu hateb) a bydd yn medru esbonio beth sy’n digwydd.
Yn anffodus, dydy Facebook ddim yn caniatáu i ni newid enw’r dudalen os nad oes gennych lai na 200 o ddilynwyr. Felly, rydym wedi sefydlu tudalennau newydd.
Mae croeso i chi ychwanegu eich ffotograffau at ein tudalennau newydd – byddem yn falch iawn o’u gweld yno! Yn anffodus, unwaith y bydd y dudalen hon wedi ei chau, ni fydd ffordd o gael gafael ar y ffotograffau ar y dudalen hon eto.
Bydd ein strwythur newydd yn eich galluogi i barhau i dderbyn y newyddion diweddaraf am eich hoff warchodfa. Bydd hefyd yn caniatáu i ni rannu newyddion am bethau cyffrous eraill sy’n digwydd yn eich ardal chi.
Dydyn ni ddim yn dymuno i chi golli’r newyddion am eich hoff leoliadau. Bydd y strwythur hwn yn ein galluogi i anfon y newyddion diweddaraf i chi heb i chi orfod dilyn llawer o wahanol dudalennau’r RSPB.
Bydd RSPB Ynys-hir a RSPB Lake Vyrnwy yn cael eu cau o fewn dau fis -dilynwch ein tudalen newydd RSPB Mid Wales cyn hynny.
Diolch o dîm RSPB Ynys-hir a RSPB Llyn Efyrnwy
Autumn is a stunning season and Lake Vyrnwy has been looking spectacular over the past few weeks. The deep chestnut colour of the beech leaves reflecting on the still waters of the lake, combined with beautiful light has made it a photographer’s dream. A lot of our time recently has been taken up with nestboxes, 500 of them in fact- cleaning them, maintaining them, updating the maps and using a GPS to get a grid reference for each box. All of the work we have been doing is designed to reduce the amount of time spent doing the same job next year and to help with bird ringing in the spring and summer.
Gethin and I have successfully passed our chainsaw tests. Gethin had a refresher for medium and large trees and I now have a license for small trees. It was a great week of training and our instructor Alun Jones was fantastic. I had previously never picked up a chainsaw and Alun was extremely patient and clear. We undertook this training so we can begin clearing a few of the self-seeded conifers from the upland areas of the reserve. We also have a patch of land in some local forestry, which we manage specifically for Black Grouse and this means clearing away some of the conifers in the area to create a more mixed habitat with areas to feed that has adequate cover close by. We have lots planned for the coming weeks including doing maintenance on parts of the hides and gathering and processing heather seed.
