I believed that there was just one nesting pair of Osprey in Byron Bay but was amazing to notice a second nest. Right in the centre of town, by a busy road but close to the ocean (food source) a pair have built a nest right on the top of a Norfolk Pine. They have at least one chick and are very busy (unnoticed by all the humans below) bringing food and sticks (fortifying the nest) back to the site.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.
