About the Dyfi Osprey Project
The Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust are pleased to announce that for the first time in over 400 years, ospreys are breeding in the Dyfi valley, on the Trust's Cors Dyfi Nature Reserve. After many close calls during the last two years, our male osprey, 'Monty' has finally managed to attract a female. This osprey has a ring on her right leg - she is a 2008 bird from a Rutland Water nest - we've called her 'Nora'! After 16 days of frantic courtship behaviours our Dyfi pair laid their ever first egg on Easter Monday - 25th April. A second came three days later 28th April and a final egg on 1st May.On Sunday 5th June, at 1:10pm, the first osprey chick began to make its way into the world. Within two hours, the first chick had emerged, closely watched by proud parents Monty & Nora. The second chick finally struggled free of the egg at 6:35am on Monday 6th June, leaving the third to burst forth on Tuesday 7th June!
