Fish for Breakfast


10 in stock

The Osprey nest on the coast of the Cape Range is one that I regularly visit to monitor the pair and their annual brood. I was ready at sunrise to capture the first catch of the day. Ospreys (Pandion Haliaetus) usually mate for life, so while one partner is sitting on the nest looking after the eggs (of which there can be up to four) the other one goes hunting for fish which makes up 99% of their diet. They can detect under water objects from up to 10-40 m above the water. The typical lifespan is 7-10 years.Rarely, individuals can grow to as old as 20-25 years.

The Osprey is the second most widely distributed raptor species, after the peregrine falcon worldwide and in Australia.
