The female was perched on top of the nest, with the male sitting on a tree in the area. Neither of them are in incubation positions yet. They clearly want to nest in this location.

The small nest is still intact. This time, there were both male and female occupying the nest. Neither were in incubation positions, but this pair of Ospreys seem to have chosen this location to nest.
