observed for 25 minutes. 100% cloud cover with medium visibility, 2 birds on the nest. A third osprey flew by and seemed to upset the 2 on the nest, they were chattering and flapping. The 3rd bird flew off and landed near nest 6019. One of the 2 on this nest flew off and did not return while I was there.
