Moving anywhere can be a challenge, but when your home is showing signs of wear and the foundations are starting to get a little shaky, it’s time to move.
In the case of the Wellington Point osprey pair, that meant a move 100 metres down the coast!
In 2015, the tree they were nesting in became unsafe, so Redland City Council carefully packed up their nest and relocated it to the pole and platform you see before you. Ospreys can successfully relocate to artificial nest platforms and have a preference for homes that are exposed and located at great heights.
To our joy, the osprey pair immediately set to work redecorating and rearranging their nest.
