Cors Bodeilio is a nationally important nature
reserve due to its unique mire, which lies in a shallow limestone
valley between Llangefni and Pentraeth, on the Isle of Anglesey.
Water from the surrounding Carboniferous limestone rocks feed the
mire, and this in turn has encouraged the development of a range of
different wetland fen species, which prosper over the bed of fen
peat. Together with other Anglesey fens, this type of threatened
wetland is very rare – in fact, because of the incredible range of
wildlife it plays host to, the reserve has a number of designations
at hand to protect it.
The reserve is at once recognized as:
· A wetland of international importance (Anglesey and Llyn Fens
· A Site of Special Scientific Interest (Cors Bodeilio SSSI)
· A Special Area of Conservation (Corsydd Môn/Anglesey Fens
