We consider a continuous time branching random walk on the lattice in which individuals may produce children at the origin only. Assuming that the underlying random walk is symmetric and the offspring reproduction law is critical we find the asymptotic behavior of the survival probability of the process at time as and the probability that the number of individuals at the origin at time is positive. We also prove a Yaglom type conditional limit theorem for the total number of particles existing at time
