RSPB Osprey Nest Site, South Wales.

This was two years ago on our way back from the Brecons saw a notice "RSPB This Way" so decided to follow the signs ended up in a field
where the RSPB had opened a temporary small visitor centre, inside they had cameras on the nest really good definition. I set up my scope for a view asked an official where the nest was and he pointed to the tree's just left of centre, my scope is not bad , but this distance was a trifle to far away, we made enquires from time to time and learnt that the pair had successfully reared two chicks and were ringed at five weeks, the year before the chicks died of hypothermia heavy rain and unseasonal low temperatures were to blame.
