Nesting Diaries

A very determined pair of Osprey built this nest in April 2011. It seemed that every time they made progress a gust of wind would wipe out all their work. However, they just kept at it and stick by stick they built a nest which has now been up for almost a year. We observed a few attempts at mating last year, but no chicks every emerged. We're awaiting the return of this pair and hopefully we can witness a more successful attempt at procreation!
