    The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) says the decision is based on the need to re-prioritise and help species in decline.

    Since the birds of prey arrived in 2004 more than 180,000 people have visited the site near Porthmadog. And though RSPB is leaving the project, discussions are on going to get it adopted by the local community.

    Quoted by BBC, an RSPB spokesman said that “This decision was made solely on the basis of a need to re-priorities our resources to areas of greater conservation concern."
    "A worrying amount of Wales' wildlife is in catastrophic decline and RSPB Cymru has a limited amount of resources to try and achieve an overwhelming amount of work."

    The good news is that the ospreys in the area are going well. The bad news is that other species in Wales, such as curlew and lapwing, need help too.
