Mr Osprey has his mate.

You've got to hand it to the Ospreys. They didn't waste much time getting re-acquainted. No messing around with foreplay or anything like that. They haven't met for best part of a year and they're at it like knives within two hours. This might seem a bit hasty by human standards, but its fantastic news for we bird lovers in Wales. It really does look as if all the hard work has paid off.

It was a bit of a gamble to build a special nest site for the pair of Osprey which visited the Dyfi briefly last year, hoping they would return and breed this year. I posted when the nest was built, and when the male bird arrived, and today we have consummation. It does look as if the gamble has come off. Hats off to the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust.

Out of interest do you know if either bird is the offspring of the Point Croesor pair? It would seem likely.

In patentese we can look forward to the sounds of wee patent feet. Uuh, the marvels of patent life.
