Over 2021, The Milford Land Conservation Trust (MLCT) saw major success in their cooperative effort to provide a nesting platform to an Osprey family.
Across from a railroad catenary structure at Gulf Pond, MLCT members and volunteers gathered to erect a 20-foot tall Osprey nest. Ospreys had nested on the catenary for 3 years prior and failed to propagate.
In just under 7 months, an Osprey pair transitioned to the new nest and successfully raised a family! On September 9, 2021, the Osprey family migrated and the nest was vacant. MLCT expects the pair to return in late March/early April 2022 to continue to grow their family…
