Hornby Osprey Nest - 2016 Season
« on: May 18, 2016, 09:48:20 AM »
 
The posts about the Hornby Osprey Nest have gotten thin.
Last year we didn*t even start a topic.
The nesting used to be a yearly event, but now the pair seem to have stopped, which is really sad.
But i am ever hopeful.
To see what happened in 2014, & find links to previous years, go here.

wooohoooo!

We were walking back from observing the Tribune Bay Tennis Court Nest, which i posted about here , when i noticed a large Bird circling over the shore.
The Bird was big, like an Eagle, but had long thin wings.
As i got my camera out to try to get a foto, the Bird flew over Spray Point towards Little Trib.
Under the wings was white.
i am thinking this may have been an Osprey.
They used to Nest nearby, now it is exciting just to think you many have seen one...
