Forest Farm

Forest Farm is a small local nature reserve on the outskirts of Cardiff not far from the Coryton roundabout (M4 Junction 32). There are two bird hides as well as the Glamorganshire Canal, where mallards and moorhen are quit common, and if you’re lucky you’ll see grey herons, kingfishers or snipe. On the river Taff nearby you’ll also be able to see blackheaded gull, goosanders and cormorants.
