Ospreys in Wales

Persecuted to the point of extinction in the UK in the early 1900s, Ospreys have made a big come-back in Scotland but still just 4 breeding pairs in Wales.

Successful projects, each with a breeding pair are BGGW Glaslyn Ospreys & The Dyfi Osprey Project
In 2015 those Ospreys were known as Aran + Mrs G on the Glaslyn and Monty and Glesni on the Dyfi.
We also had one other pair in the Snowdonia zone and one in Mid-Wales.

The beautiful Dyfi valley, home to the Dyfi Ospreys since 2008

Several more young single birds resided or visited in the Glaslyn + Dyfi valleys in 2015.
We have lost one male CU2 Jimmy but fingers crossed for Blues 5F, 3J + 24 and 80 next year.
New nests put up by Friends of the Ospreys are awaiting you!
