looks like various osprey use these VFW platforms as a dining room, nothing serious happening just random sightings here.

As in years past this nesting platform sees little osprey activity. Occasionally an osprey will land and sit for a second but mostly gulls perch here. I think the location is too loud and too much dog and people action.
