Fantastic news, the ospreys have nested. And they are obviously of an artistic disposition as they have chosen to nest in the top of a sculpture.
There seems to be no shortage of food for them. The male (I think) has just caught a fish here and sometimes takes them back to the nest.
I think this must be the female. She keeps rearranging the nest. She has a fantastic view of the marina from here – people pay millions of dollars for a home location like that.
She doesn’t spend all of her time on the nest though. Here she is on her usual perch – a balcony overlooking the marina. It’s very tempting to knock at the house and invite myself in for a better view.
The male likes to take his meal back to eat near the nest too.
Incubation should take about 5 weeks according to wiki so hopefully sometime in November I can post pics of chicks in the nest.
One of them shows great disregard for the rules here.
