Eastern Osprey

The Osprey were on and around the nest from June to October 2017. There were two vantage points and I took around 4000 photos. Most were just a little head peeking over the top of the nest. The photos were usually at the end of the range of the camera. Sometimes the Osprey came closer. I did get some of the Osprey catching a fish.

There were five or six of us visiting the sites at different times. We made friends with the oyster farmers and the houseboat people who were interested in our comings and goings.

Below are a small number of photos showing the highlights.
