Join the Big Pull

By | Category: Travel news

Come St David’s Day this Thursday, the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust wants you. In particular, 60  of you. And the more, the merrier!
Remember the ospreys that hatched last year on the Dyfi in mid Wales, the first time in over 400 years? It caused great excitement and visitor numbers rose as a result. The BBC Springwatch team followed them and later, Autumnwatch,tracked down two of them to Africa. Nothing is, unfortunately, known of the third.

The trust wants to upgrade the nesting cameras before the parents, Monty and Nora, return in late March.

And this is why they need you.

Eight hundred metres of cable needs to be pulled over the rough terrain from the nest to the visitors centre and they think that at least sixty strongish people should be able to do it. The cable has been donated by Network Rail and the course that you need to haul it over has already been marked out.
It’s boggy ground so wellies or waders and old clothes are the order of the day. You can find more information on the trust’s website. Just turn up at Cors Dyfi Nature Reserve near Machynlleth for a 10am start. As an incentive, tea and coffee (plus the odd biscuit) will be in unlimited supply to buttress your willpower.
