Selelcted text from the article:
"A pair of ospreys needing to find a new home following the destruction of their nest may have missed their chance.
A new nesting platform was hastily erected at Llyn Brenig on the Denbigh Moors after their chosen site was cut down with a chainsaw in a “horrendous wildlife crime”.
A decoy egg was placed on the nest and the Brenig Osprey Project (BOP) said the pair had been showing “considerable interest”.
But a week ago a greylag goose began scouting the nest – and she has now laid eggs there."
