As promised in August 2017 the following is a statement by the Trustees of Bywyd Gwyllt Glaslyn Wildlife (BGGW) with regard to the Pont Croesor (PC) nest for the 2018 season.
The PC nest is situated on land neither owned nor leased by BGGW. The structure on which the nest is sited is not owned by BGGW.
The ‘owners’ of the nest structure have stated that any request to remove it would be refused.
At the Welsh Osprey Forum held in September, Natural Resources Wales made it clear that the PC nest is seen as active and any request to interfere with it in any way would require a special licence.
The camera will be retained above the PC nest and used to help protect any resident, eggs and offspring.
