We did not see any young osprey at the nest on Marina Way today; but did see an adult on a favourite perch tree a short distance down the road from the nest. It was very quiet in the area.

We went to see the osprey at the nest on the light standard overlooking the field at UVic but we did not see or hear any osprey in the area.

There was one young osprey in the nest on the light standard at the ball park today. It was calling and calling but no adults came to the nest. It flew off and circled around the parking lot then landed on the railing beside the nest.

Back at the nest site on the railing after a short fly around. It was preening and watching the workers on the field below.
