STOPS ALONG THE WAY

RAILWAY OSPREYS (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

Railway Egrets-2

There are quite a few abandoned railway bridges in the countryside. With the closure of many Mills, railroads were no longer needed to move goods.  Some of the bridges have been reclaimed by Ospreys who build their nests and raise their young on them. When we noticed the nest on the first bridge, we stopped the car and waited to see what would happen.  We didn’t have to wait long as an adult flew in to feed the young bird.

  5. Belinda, that is a very unique photo of Ospreys! It’s full of action and life.
    I didn’t know that the Ospreys build the nest on the bridges. You were so fortunate to find their nest there.

  8. Nice Belinda! Did not see an Egret in the photos, or is it both Ospreys & Egrets?
