The Glaslyn Osprey Project is part of 'Aren't Welsh Birds Brilliant!', a partnership between RSPB Cymru, Forestry Commission Wales and the Countryside Council for Wales.
It is funded by the European Union's Objective One programme through the Welsh Assembly Government (European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund) and Enfys, funded by the Big Lottery Fund and administered by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action.
