A two-storey wildlife observatory is nearing completion at the home of one of only two known pairs of breeding ospreys in Wales.
The 360 degree wooden structure is being built at the Cors Dyfi nature reserve near Machynlleth, Powys, with help of nearly £1.4m worth of grants.
The site will open all-year round when work on the observatory finishes instead of its current five months.
Its Dyfi Osprey Project attracted 31,000 visitors this year.
The first osprey chick in the Dyfi valley for 400 years hatched in 2011 and this year two chicks hatched.
