Nest is active but too high in tower to accurately observe.

Two adults present. Very high up in cell tower; difficult to monitor.

Finally observed two chicks at this nest. Hatch date unknown. They were alone in nest awaiting return of adults.

2 adults present, perched in tree, adjacent to tower. A 3rd Osprey approached the area and was promptly driven away. Both birds then left for about ten minutes. One returned with a small fish and was joined shortly after by the other.
