Colours of Llantwit marshes

The mild and wet winter has allowed the tawny shades of dead grasses to linger and develop against bright green new growth.  The marshland between the Community Path and Llantwit Fardre provides a vivid background for walkers and cyclists to enjoy (horses, unaccountably, being excluded).

The marshes are a SINC (Site of Importance for Nature Conservation), and, before the Church Village bypass was built, they were always good places to walk though often boggy bits made footpaths unpassable.  There are consulations going on about links for truncated footpaths to improve the network in line with the Active Travel Act and recreational use   (including Open Spaces Society – ie me – and the Ramblers).

I wonder if the bright green bits will survive if it snows?

    Love the tawny shades of grass. There’s much more green around here.
