Ospreys beg for privacy after latest tragedy

Sad news from pair of Ospreys in Townsville Town Common Conservation Park today.

'We've lost our expected increase,' one of the pair (above), asking for gender anonymity, said. 'We are too shattered to speak of the details.

'The loss has cast a pall over the second new home we were driven to build by people intruding too closely to our old nest area.

'Coming on top of being burned out less than two years ago, rebuilding, being blessed only twice since then . . . now this latest tragedy - it's almost too much to bear.

'We have decided to return to our old nest and hope and beg to be left in peace. Thank you.'
