The County of Gwent (Monmouthshire) is one of great variety. These five walks have been planned to introduce you to the wealth of variety on offer. This walk visits the south of the county to spend time watching birds in the coastal and wetland areas along the estuary. Be prepared to spend the day on this walk as there are bird hides and birdwatching opportunities all the way round. I walked it in March and got a bird list of over twenty, not counting common field birds. Avocets nest near the hides at Goldcliff.

Walk 4157 explores the countryside in the middle of the county. The route takes you right round Llandegfedd Reservoir and will be of great interest to birdwatchers. Walk 4158 starts from Usk and after following one of the county's biggest rivers, continues up Cwm Cayo before dropping down to visit Usk Castle. Walk 4159 explores one of the ancient woods to be found in the Wye Valley. Walk 4160 goes to the north of the county to sample the delights of woods, water and mountains.
