Wales could soon have it's second pair of breeding ospreys after a male osprey was spotted setting up home on a man-made nest at Cors Dyfi reserve in Powys over the Easter weekend.

Lucky visitors to the new site near Machynlleth were able to see the bird carrying out maintenance work on the nest and bringing back fish from the River Dyfi.

Fingers crossed a mate will arrive soon.

In the meantime, if you want to keep up to date with all the latest news from the neighbouring Glaslyn ospreys, check out the RSPB's special online diary.

Here project offficer Geraint Williams of RSPB Cymru will be posting regular updates throughout the season about Wales' only pair of breeding ospreys and their new brood.

The birds have attracted thousands of visitors to the site at Glaslyn near Porthmadog since they first arrived in 2004.

Now the pair are developing a growing online following too with fans signing up to leave messages and receive blow by blow accounts straight to their computer.

Remember you can also see the latest pictures from the nest via the osprey webcam on BBC North West Wales.
