I did not make any claims except ask the question Dean, in respect to what I observed. The most intriguing aspect for me was when the first bird we observed "trod" on the bird in the tree to which it alighted but that there was a nesting osprey in the first tree from which it flew. I can't return to the site but would love some eye witness recording of these nests from local naturalists in the Sawtell region.
Incidentally I was reading my current issue of Birds and the RSPB refers to this behaviour among hen harriers in the northern hemisphere.
