Osprey chick at Cors Dyfi

Osprey chick at Cors Dyfi

For the first time in 400 years (as far as we know anyway) Ospreys are breeding in the Dyfi Valley.  Today we visited the Cors Dyfi Nature Reserve, about half an hour South from Graig Wen to view the nest from the hide in the marshes.  We could clearly see the female peaking out of her enormous nest, and a solicitous male hanging around and delivering the odd sea trout.  All three eggs are now hatched and you can watch the wobbly chicks on large screens as well as on the Dyfi Ospreys web site. With Ospreys also nesting at Glaslyn, about 40 minutes north of here, we are keeping our eyes peeled and fingers crossed that these spectacular birds of prey might be visiting the Mawddach Estuary. Until then, we are delighted to see the housemartins back and nesting under all 8 eves of The Slate Shed B & B and our holiday cottages.
