Nest #4737

Nickname: Dartmouth Car Port
Nest substrate: Utility Pole
Nest Location Description: Another example of the high level of tolerance of osprey, this nest is located in a busy container pier. Due to security restrictions, access to the nest is limited. The closest and safest viewing area is several hundred yards away … that is, unless one has a boat!

Nesting Diaries

Observed 2 chicks in the nest and the female's behaviour suggests she was feeding a 3rd. The male was perched not far away.

Have not yet seen both the male and female together, but did observe the female incubating. Raining heavily at the time.

Arrived to find female in residence.

As I had only visited this site once last season in April, there is no nesting data to report
