They’re late (March 25), but an osprey was observed on the nest platform. You may recall that the Town of Chesapeake Beach Public Works and CBOCS volunteers erected two osprey platforms during the Spring of 2014. Last year a camera was placed above and adjacent to the eastern platform just in time for the ospreys’ return on March 17, 2016. Those ospreys successfully fledged two chicks AFTER the camera was struck by lightning, preventing viewers from observing the fledging (flight development) process.
