Ospreys in Scotland were almost extinct in the late 19th century. Some reasons why the Osprey was almost extinct is when the Ospreys migrate they have several predators such as the crocodile, buffalo, raccoons and snakes but also Ariel predators such as owls and eagles; also bad weather.
How do Ospreys build their nests? They construct their nests at the top of dead trees, at the top of power poles, on man-made nesting platforms and sometimes on buoys, chimneys and other structures.
Baby Ospreys leave the nest when they are 7-8 weeks old; ospreys fled at the age of 6-7 weeks. 2 weeks after fledgling the young will start to follow the male on hunting trips. They spend days practicing on perching and flying.
Ospreys spend 5 months in Scotland and spend 7 months in West Africa. They migrate because of the weather it is still warm in Africa but is freezing temperature in Scotland. They can’t take the cold temperature.
You can keep the surrounding water clean and running you can also stop toxic debris. The environment also needs to be thriving with plants and flowers for them to live a healthy life.
Thank you for reading and we hope you can help the environment and conserve the Ospreys nest, to secure their habitats and to give them a chance at bouncing back.
