Hi Limpy, great idea starting this thread.
I am looking at some older photos of Monty so I'll start with 2013.
April 2013 - This is an arty one of Monty and one of the females trying to win his heart.
EDIT: This female is Seren (Welsh for "Star") (Please, correct me if I'm wrong.)
June 2013 - Classic ones of Monty's eyes
June 2013 - Monty incubating on a warm day

This is Monty's arrival on 8th April 2014 at 13:13. Dai Dot is on the nest when Monty makes his grand entrance and sends him packing.
OK, I've been through lots of captures from the last three years of Dyfi and I have a selection of suitable Monty snaps!
Here we go:
A fish and three quarters for Clarach and Cerist at the beginning of September 2013
Sunning himself a few days later
Getting happily stuck into incubation, 2014
Sitting proudly over Gwynant and Deri
He waited for hours with this fish the day after Deri migrated last year - what a dad!
Post-bath pose the day before he migrated last year
Losing no time in strengthening the pair bond with Glesni the day she arrived this year
An attempt at an incubating garden doesn't quite go to plan
You will let me have a turn on the eggs!
Finally, he gets to feed one of his young this year.

A windy day at Dyfi Monty hangs on
What a lovely thread! Thanks, All!
I managed to get this one of Monty about to fly from the nest earlier today:
He has also found time to encourage his paternal instincts today:
