Birdwatching, free entry

SY20 8SR



In 2011, for the first time in over 400 years Ospreys bred in the Dyfi valley on the Cors Dyfi Nature Reserve site, following three years work by the trust to reintroduce the birds into the area.

The osprey project is open from April to September, 10:00 - 18:00. During osprey project opening hours, there is a suggested donation scheme (£2.50 individual, £5 families and £10 season ticket) to help cover the costs of running the project; entry is free at other times.

With the exception of an elevated bird hide and the upper level of the 360 Observatory, the reserve is fully accessible to wheelchair users. Facilities include visitor centre with a small shop and a cafe offering basic refreshments - teas/coffees, sandwiches, cakes etc. There is a disabled male and female toilet.

Well-behaved dog owners are welcome - remember, you dog doesn't know that it is a nature reserve, so please help us retain this privilege by keeping him on a lead and clearing up any mess.

Remember that the Cors Dyfi reserve is still open throughout the year so do pop down if you get the chance. The postcode is SY20 8SR.

For the most up to date information about the ospreys and future developments at Cors Dyfi reserve, please visit or follow on Facebook and Twitter.
