Nesting Diaries

09/01/2016 by Donna B
2016 was the first season that this nesting platform was in place. During the previous year or two, an osprey pair had tried building a nest in an old dead tree on the island, but the nesting material fell. The ospreys were often seen around the island during these summers. During the 2016 season, the Osprey pair claimed the platform in mid April and built a nest. It did not appear that any eggs were laid, but the ospreys were often seen at the nest and in the area through the summer. It may be that this was a young pair.
