Photos of this nest
two young still in nest; one adult seen at nest
When I started watching there were 2 adults at the nest--one standing on the nest and the other below. They stood around for a long time preening. One eventually left and returned with a fish which the other adult fed to two very small chicks. These are considerably smaller than those at the other nest here (#2); though I had a closer view of this nest it was much harder to see the chicks and when I did it was just tiny silhouettes but I could see them feeding.
1 osprey in nest, only head visible. An adult standing on the nest.
2 ospreys at the nest, one perched below it and the other on the nest. The one on the nest stood up and preened and flapped her wings.
