Dyfi Osprey Project
After being single for most of the summer to date, it looks as if our female has found a mate. Or two!. For the past four days we have seen the Dyfi female with two other ospreys - it seems too early yet to attempt any kind of who's with who analysis but picture is looking good. We've been able to see two/three ospreys regularly from the hide and pick them up on the live cameras perching on various posts on the Dyfi. Good views have also been enjoyed from the Marian Mawr hide at Ynys Hir.
Other birds of note this week - Nightjars still churring, good views of cuckoos, lots of fledgings around including many Lesser Redpolls and a Kite mobbing an osprey over the reserve. Who'd have thought that a few years ago!
