With generous support from the TD Friends of the Environment, a telescope has been placed on the viewing tower at Charlottenburgh Park that provides an excellent opportunity to view nesting Ospreys on the nest structure that was installed last winter. The RRCA has been monitoring the success of breeding Ospreys as part of the Remedial Action Plan for the area for the past five years.
