If we build it, they will come ….

An exciting new venture is afoot on the newly developing salt marsh at Cwm Ivy.

Last Friday, we installed a specially designed and built nesting platform, to attract ospreys to the marsh.

The nest was built by our colleagues in Brecon and transported to Gower, where we put the finishing touches to it – adding branches, twigs and even fake poo, to make it look more authentic!

Ospreys are regularly seen hunting in the area, during their spring and autumn migration. It is hoped that the new nesting platform will encourage them to set up home here for the breeding season.

Keep your eyes on the skies…!
