A popular BBC Springwatch osprey Monty made its way back to Wales and now awaits for its partner Nora and the first chick, Elnion who are about to return from Africa.

Wardens claimed that Monty (or Maldwyn in Welsh) has been preparing and sorting out its nest at the Dyfi Osprey Project.

A warden, Emyr Evans said that everyone at the Dyfi Osprey Project is looking upwards and hopes to see Nora coming home.

“The wind is favouring migratory birds now so she could be on her way,” he said.

The ospreys belong to a very rare breed of birds.

Nowadays, it’s believed that only 8,000 of them live in Europe.

Initially, they could be found in almost every European country.

However, in the 19th and at the beginning of the 20h century ospreys died out and almost disappeared from the Old World.
