The Llysdinam Estate of the Dillwyn Venables Llewelyn family lies opposite the village of Newbridge‐ on‐Wye in mid Powys, separated from it by the River Wye. In the early 1900s Sir Charles Dillwyn Llewellyn set up, on the estate, one of the earliest monitored nest box sites in Wales. Monitoring continued through his son Sir Michael. When Sir Michael invited what is now Cardiff University to open a Field Centre at Llysdinam he had established a facility that took over existing, and developed new, ornithological investigations which have continued, in part, even after the Llysdinam Field Centre closed in 2010. This report gives a flavour of the range of ornithological topics which have been undertaken in the mid‐Wales rivers and woodlands over the last half century involving the Llysdinam Field Centre.
