I have just received word from Save the Animals Rescue that they have offered their services to clean the nest at Patchogue and have contacted the local agencies and are awaiting a permit from USFWS to go up to the Osprey platform on Long Island.
Thank you, everyone. I will keep you posted as I hear more.
I went to the UK as a Commonwealth Scholar in 1990 and received my PhD from the University of Leicester in 1993. After three decades of university teaching, I retired to devote my time to the study of raptor behaviour. I am particularly interested in Ospreys and am working on a long term project on third hatch survival and siblicide in these raptors. My blog is a result of a fascination with my local wildlife and the desire to encourage others to love and care for birds! I live on the Canadian Prairies and prior to the pandemic travelled a lot. I am questioning the use of aviation fuel at the moment as we all strive to help our planet. My early research was in politics and art including British public statues exported to Southeast Asia and Vietnam Resistors that contributed much to Canadian ceramics. Books and articles were published on those subjects over a period of 3 decades. Now I am working on books for children so they can learn about the challenges our raptors face.

I just saw this Mary Ann. We have been gone to pay bills and the store. I just heard back from the agency who have the nest set up there. They are also checking on this for us.
Thank you for this update and hopefully all the fishing line and plastic will get cleaned out soon. 🙏
Fingers crossed…I continue to write and call…
