The Cardiff Bay Wetlands Reserve is an area of piece and quiet right in the middle of Cardiff Bay. It was formed from the salt marshes and mud flats on the edge of the Bay in front of Windsor Esplanade after the bay was permanently flooded.
There was some concern that when the Cardiff Bay barrage was built that the wildlife would all leave but the Wetlands Reserve has proved to be a popular area.
Although totally man-made it has become a haven for birds in the Bay.
It also provides a quiet place to walk or cycle just away from the hustle and bustle of the Bay.
