Camden Haven residents are delighted the resident Ospreys at Queens Lake have taken to building a nest at the location.

In October, 2018 the birds received a new purposely-built platform for them to construct a nest, after their previous one fell down in a storm.

Keen birdwatcher and resident Marcel Kaegi often walks past the platform's location and photographs the birds enjoying their habitat.

Marcel said the birds have only recently started building the nest.

"At the moment the birds are working on 'producing eggs', then soon will be looking after the eggs and later the hatchlings in the newly built nest.

"Great success on all parties concerned who participated in this species-protection action."

Marcel said there are two older birds (the nesting couple) and also two younger ospreys which frequent the location.

Marcel has observed the birds undertake their work to collect twigs and branches. They have interwinded the material to create a suitable and safe place for their offsprings.

What else is making news?
