Ospreys seem to be plentiful this year, including the pair in the marsh behind Lobsta Land. There are 3 eggs in that nest and you can watch progress on the osprey cam (link: https://ecga.org/Osprey-cam) The Essex Greenbelt website reports that “Annie” and “Squam” are tending to three eggs, the first of which is expected to hatch around June 15.
We have been keeping an eye on them from the road, but watching on the webcam is much much better! A screenshot from the webcam taken today May 31. One appeared to be feasting in the nest while the other watched from a safe distance.
Here’s another I took earlier this season before the eggs appeared. Obviously the webcam is a much better view.
And another taken in flight recently. They are magnificent.
