Eastern Osprey nest on Budd Island, Batemans Bay

The nesting activity of a pair of Eastern Osprey at Batemans Bay has attracted the attention of the Conservation Officer for BirdLife Australia Shoalhaven.  Nesting of this species south of Sydney is unusual, nesting on a natural structure even more so.  Chris visited the nest in June and captured these photos of the pair despite less than ideal conditions for photography.
