Lake Vyrnwy is one of the most important and precious places for nature in Wales – and the UK. Sadly, with a worrying decline in threatened birds like pied flycatchers, whinchats, hen harriers and black grouse, it urgently needs your help.
With a regular monthly gift, you can support vital conservation work to regenerate, protect and preserve this unique Welsh haven that is home to so many rare species. Your generosity to protect and improve the unique habitat at Lake Vyrnwy will help its special wildlife to thrive. Please pledge to donate regularly today.

Please help the amazing wildlife at Lake Vyrnwy
From lakeside oak woodlands and rare ffridd, to boggy uplands and heather-topped hills, this is a unique and spectacular place. See how you can help protect the wildlife throughout this precious valley.
Protect wildlife every month up and down the valley
- Regenerate lakeside oak woodland for pied flycatchers by clearing conifers and rhododendrons
- Manage the fragile ffridd, by clearing away bracken and planting rowan trees to provide food for whinchats
- Protect heather nesting sites so that hen harriers can hide precious eggs and chicks
How your donation can help
Protect flycatcher chicks in lakeside woods
Just £3 a month could help create more nesting and feeding sites for pied flycatchers in oak woods
Let whinchats flourish in the ffridd
Just £5 a month could ensure the unique ffridd provides an ideal home for whinchats
Keep hen harriers roaming moorlands
Just £10 a month could help monitor vital hen harrier nesting sites, giving them a secure haven in Wales
Provide plentiful foraging sites for black grouse
Just £5 a month could support beautiful black grouse.
Lake Vyrnwy is one of the last refuges for black grouse in mid-Wales but we need your regular help to stop their decline by:
1. Creating covered ground nesting sites in tall heather
2. Encouraging insects on marshy ground to feed grouse chicks
3. Opening up the natural woodland to provide food in autumn
