Photos of Osprey – there must be half a dozen at Urangan boat Harbour.  They’re a bit of a menace as they love to perch on top of a mast, wreaking havoc with wind vanes and antennae.

 

One of our favourite aspects of Lady Musgrave Island is that it is a breeding ground for bird species such as the Noddy and various species of Tern.  As there are no predators (on land anyway!) birds have no fear of humans and some, like the Black Noddy, will quite happily sit on the ground meters away from one.
