Amazing week at Cors Dyfi osprey project
Monty and his new mate, Blue 12, at Cors Dyfi
5 females and 2 males in a week
May 2013. Monty, the male that has been resident at Cors Dyfi for the last year or two, has not been joined by his regular mate, Nora, this year. In her absence over the last week Monty has been ‘flirting’ with at least 5 different females, whilst another male was seen in the area as well. It appears that Monty has now settled down with ‘Blue 12′, who was hatched at Rutland Water in 2010, and, interesting, was spotted at Rutland on 27th April, a few days before she appeared at Dyfi.
