CommentOspreys are a remarkably integrated quasi-urban raptore in parts of their range. This bird was associated with a nest which had been built on an artificial nest site. When a storm blew the nest off the artificial structure, council workers got a crane and lifted the sticks back to the nest. The Ospreys use artificial structures for feeding, loafing, roosting and keeping watch. A certain amount of feeding is done by the locals. The tail structure of this particular mullet looks a bit as if the fish was dead before being 'caught' by the Osprey. The birds appear almost totally unconcerned by the presence of humans.
