The Dyfi Estuary is located on the west coast
of Wales on the boundary between Ceredigion, Gwynedd and Powys. The
site is of international importance as a traditional wintering area
for Greenland White-fronted Goose (Anser albifrons flavirostris).
The SPA comprises the estuary, with adjoining saltmarsh, marshy
grassland and improved grassland. The Dyfi Estuary is the sole
remaining wintering site in Wales and the most southerly in the UK.
It is both a roosting and feeding area for Greenland White-fronted
Goose, and is particularly important in the context of maintaining
the traditional wintering range within the UK.
