Gwent Square of the Month - June 2016



This square is located in the east of Caerphilly County, near Abercarn. The square contains 27 records, but the majority pre-date 1990. Just 6 records have been collected in this square during the past 25 years, and we would love a more up to date species list.

The square is upland and contains woodland, with a few rights of way and a lane running through it.
