Purpose-built Osprey Nesting Platform

By RSK
Power companies build these Osprey Nesting platforms in the hope the Ospreys will use them to build their nests on,to prevent them from being injured or killed from power lines,which they do try to use for nesting.The good news is the Ospreys do use these man made platforms.

There are quite a few Osprey nests in the Scottish Highlands. This used to be my local one at Dunkeld, Perthshire which has an observation hut where you can view them and a webcam at -

The nesting pair there have been coming back for many years. When they are hatching the eggs they have people guarding the nest to prevent people stealing the eggs. A sad World?
