Mammals

In an area comprised of remote heath-lands with sandy tracts bordering on rich pastures, Rabbits thrive. Hedgehogs are a common sight and a multitude of Shrews and Voles frequent the hedgerows and dry-stone walls. It is not surprising, therefore, that the area boasts a thriving population of predators. The Polecat, Weasel and Stoat can often be seen dashing across the country lanes in pursuit of their next meal and Foxes boldly stalk in the fields and copses.

Despite continued persecution, Badgers are firmly established in the region with a number of extensive set complexes being established in more remote areas. Otters seem to be on the comeback, particularly in the north-eastern part of the area.

Traditional stone-built farmsteads, so common in the area, offer sanctuary to a number of bat species, predominantly the Pipistrelle, whose twilight fluttering is so much a part of the summer evening tranquillity of Llyn.
