Nesting Ospreys

Just north of the mouth of the Margaret River there is a huge Osprey nest that has been used for many years by a pair of Ospreys. It is on a small rocky outcrop just offshore so they are safe from everything except other birds. In this photo Dad is just leaving to go hunting. He joined up with about 3 other Ospreys who were circling the area. I think they may be chicks from previous years.

At least one of the chicks has hatched – I have one photo in which you can see a little head but you need to compare it with other photos to be sure it is not part of a branch, so I won’t post it.

    • Thanks Mark. My new lens is perfect for this sort of shot. I also got some shots of an albatross, and a Nankeen Kestrel which I will post later.
