Monty supported both nests with fish delivery and relief incubation for three days, but then abandoned Blue 24 and her eggs, focussing his efforts and fish deliveries entirely on Glesni and the main nest. Brenig migrated three days later, and Celyn on 29 August. They will get steadily braver, and hover increasingly higher above the nest, until the day, at roughly seven or eight weeks old, when they will take that first great leap of faith and fly for the first time.
On 3 May a victorious Blue12 landed on the nest. Very recently we have had a pair of Osprey come into the area, as they follow the River Wye up through the valley. Glesni was last seen at Cors Dyfi on 24 August, as was the eldest chick, Merin. Forty days after being laid, the first egg hatched on Monday 28 May.
The two chicks followed, with Gwynant departing on 30 August and Deri on 4 Sept. The award was presented to the project by Springwatch presenter Michaela Strachan at the project on 13 August Then we have Ben.
Then Ben Stammers from the wildlife trust will be talking about the wonderful life of our local Swifts before Julian Hughes from the RSPB talks about the breeding birds of Cyprus and migration of birds through this region.
Finally Blue24 was last seen on 4 September. Following this local Naturalist Richard Birch will be showing us the Second instalment of his film on Chile, after he returned to the country again to witness more of its amazing scenery and wildlife.
Off the beaten track - there is no passing traffic except the odd tractor and horses on the bridlepath!. Nora arrived on 24 March, and Monty returned on 2 April.
You will find the self-catering holiday cottages on our hill farm about a mile above the hamlet of Glaspwll, near Machynlleth, above the forgotten Llyfnant Valley.
Returning chicks[ edit ] 3 May - Blue 2R 13named Clarach, was the first sighting of a Dyfi bred chick returning to Wales. Then we finish the year with the Christmas Party with a buffet and Steve's Quiz, with assorted prizes and the chance to be the winner of the Birdbrain of Bangor Bird-group Shield.
Northwards is the Dyfi Osprey Project featured on Springwatch and with its viewing point, information centre and also live video stream online. Ceulan was then followed on his journey south through Europe and across into Africa, where he ended up in Senegal. Her body was removed from the nest on 22 July and taken for post-mortem, which revealed no signs of infection, poisoning or disease, and no broken bones, but signs of trauma and inflammation on the left flank.
Cors Dyfi is a wonderful nature reserve that is teaming with wildlife. Over the last few hundred years it has seen many changes, from estuarine salt marsh to reclaimed grazing, then to conifer plantation and more recently into a wildlife rich wetland reserve.
IN THE HEART OF THE DYFI VALLEY, set amid specimen trees and gold award winning gardens, you will find the tranquility of this hidden oasis. This time-honoured site was well chosen for. Pauline and Michael welcome guests to come and share the wonderful countryside at Plas Bwlch.
The name translates to Mansion of the Valley, and is a cosy Georgian style farmhouse, situated approx feet above sea level.
