A sombre Hi all,

A Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service burn in Town Common Conservation
Park yesterday destroyed an active Osprey nest - with, possibly, loss of
unseen eggs or young (female on and off nest for several months). Dead nest
tree fell. Only one of the three resident Ospreys close by today. Probably
last year's youngster, late and yet to go off on its own, nervily calling
and being harassed by Black Kites looking for after-burn pickings.
