The main ‘issue’ for Nest 2 has been that pesky osprey intruder, or intruders, this week. Historically in the Nest 1 area the problem has been crows who nest not very far from the nest. In previous years Osprey Watch visitors have seen some spectacular flying with YA or his predecessor seeing off crows too near the nest. So far in 2013 they haven’t been around much, but on Friday afternoon one tried to land on the nest and YA sprang into action to say “NO”.
