These pages will give the reader a very brief summary, both pictorial & written of the main birding sites in Glamorgan VC41. The summaries will include habitat details and OS refs. For a more detailed version the reader should cross reference with Birding in Glamorgan (Alan Rosney & Richard Smith. pub. 2009 by GBC).

Caerphilly Common ST15-85- A good site for several species preferring higher ground.

Parc Penallta near Ystrad Mynach

Rhaslas Pond
The upland body of water, which is under threat of development, has produced some excellent birds, especially wader passage in spring & autumn. Also good for white-winged gulls and grebes.
