Home Sweet Home for the Glaslyn Ospreys
It's time to dust off the binoculars as the male and female Ospreys have returned to their nest in Glaslyn Valley. The birds appear at almost the same time every year and have returned for the ninth year in a row.

You can view them from the RSPB Viewing Site at Pont Croesor, which has been popular with bird enthusiasts since its construction in 2004.

Staff and volunteers are at the site to help visitors view the birds through telescopes and binoculars, whilst live images from a nest-cam will also be shown in the visitor centre.

The site is open every day with the exception of Mondays and Fridays.

How to get there:

The viewing site is on the B4410 at Pont Croesor which is between the villages of Prenteg and Llanfrothen, and adjacent to Pont Croesor Welsh Highland Railway Station.

Trains run every day from Porthmadog and Caernarfon. Check the online timetable for details.
