21.10.2018.2018 it was about time to check on the ospreys (pandion haliaetus) in #mooloolaba again! from a far distance the male flew in and it looks like he is feeding a little one. being closer to the pole and the nest on top - you do not have a view any further because of the rim of the nest. unfortunately there was no more sighting of a juvenile or two! i got rewarded with a couple of minutes of osprey behaviour. i will have to check in a couple of weeks again.
the spit at mooloolaba - what a beautiful place to have a nest!
the osprey is a large raptor, reaching more than 60 cm (24 in) in length and 180 cm (71 in) across the wings. weight approx. 1.8 kg.the osprey's diet consists almost exclusively of fish.
thank you for watching and sharing!
