Bird lovers can now keep a 24 hour watch over a nest of rare Goshawks at Cwmcarn Forest.
A live webcam is available on the Cwmcarn Forest website where you can keep up to date as the proud parents take care of their chicks at a secret location within the forest.
The RSPB set up the 'nest-cam' for birdwatchers and visitors to Cwmcarn Forest to see the birds without disturbing them.
Known as 'the phantoms of the forest', only 500 breeding pairs of goshawks exist in the UK, so it is an amazing sight to be able to see these rare birds up close and personal via the 'nest-cam'.
RSPB staff are on hand at the site to answer any queries members of the public may have.
This project is a partnership between the RSPB, Forestry Commission Wales and Caerphilly County Borough Council.
