Nest could not be located. May have been destroyed in winter wind storm in Feb 2018.

I visited the park on 6 July and observed 4 ospreys on the nest: mother, and three nestlings. I didn't observe them fledgling, but they appeared to be ready to do so.

Yesterday both Osprey were on the nest. A third Osprey tried to join the nest and was quickly ousted.
