Platform #6160 at 110 Vines Lane had a female goose sitting eggs, having chased off the osprey. The male goose swims around post below nest, and keeps watch. Nancy

I have reported several times that platform #6160 and 6161 re THE SAME NEST. There are NOT 2 nests at 110 Vines Lane on Vines Creek in Dagsboro. 6161 got entered in error. Please remove 6161. Thank you. Nancy

Nest yielded 3 chicks but a bald eagle grasped one & dropped it in the water, while being chased away by parents, and it drowned. 2 chicks testing their wings now.
