I always get excited at the prospect of any trip to Mid-Wales but a trip especially to see birds is my idea of heaven.
Today my experience started at the Dyfi Osprey Project. The Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust now have a fantastic observatory on the Dyfi offering great views over the Osprey nest. Today’s heat-haze was a big problem and the birds are still a long way off for the camera but I was very happy with the results.
For me, a visit to Mid-Wales means a trip to Nant-yr-Arian. It’s a Forestry Commission visitor centre where every afternoon at 3pm (2pm in winter) they feed the Red Kites. The views are just stunning with over 100 Kites visible overhead.
