Glamorgan Square of the Month - July 2017



Located in Rhondda Cynon Taf west of Maerdy, this square contains just two records (see the species list from Aderyn here).

This square consists of steep hillside, woodland and a section of Maerdy town. There are several residential streets within the square, plus a right of way running through the woodland.

The square is very close to the location of our Wildlife Recording Field Day on 29th July so a visit could be combined with that event.
