Ospreys.....the easy way

While in Wales over the last week we paid a visit to the Dyfi Osprey Project at Cors Dyfi Nature Reserve, it was my five year-old boys first Ospreys so it was a great time for him too, especially as he spotted a Red Kite above the car park at the reserve (a proud moment for me I have to admit). The Osprey's are very well known due to the coverage on Springwatch, and a dedicated group of volunteers provide excellent protection for the birds and detailed information for visitors. The visitor centre and hide provide live feeds of the nest site on HD TVs; this is were I took these dodgy photos from. Apart from the Ospreys great views of Lesser Redpolls and Siskins on the feeders outside of the hide was a nice surprise, as was a larger and very coloured Redpoll (see the right hand bird in the photo) which may have been a Common (Mealy) Redpoll.
