I don't fail to recognise the point at all, but the nisting spots are gone and the trees around here have a few bald eagle nests in them and they don't get on with ospreys to well in close proximity. Now I could go and plant a couple of trees that may or may not gro to a size that would make them interesting for a osprey pair to build a nest and breed in but I just did not have that time and nor did these two birds. And if you know a bit about ospreys, you will realise, that once they have cosen a spot to build their nest, they can be very determined to finish the job, so I was glad that they took that spot I chose for them with so little fuss and are now catching up with the rest of the ospreys here in the river as far as nest building goes. I eve cut some brush for them and put it out on one of the empty floating docks and they are quite happy to take those twigs to the nest as buildingmaterial. As arteficial as that may seem to you, it may just make the difference to this particular pair of birds of having or not having a brood this season.
Just to add, that nest is not coming down on my watch not with, or without eggs in it.
