watched osprey readjust itself and flap its wings then sit back low in the nest and became practically invisible. Gates were again locked.

03/04/2017 by kmnoonan
Nest looks more developed. Gates were closed again so unable to get close for a good view of nest. Could not tell if osprey was in nest or not, and no osprey seen in the area.

Nest is in good condition. Unable to get close to the nest due to gates being locked and therefore unable to tell if there was an osprey in the nest. There was a male in a nearby tree.

Both ospreys were in the nest, the male flew off and the female remained. She appears to be incubating.
