As Scott notes on the CAS blog, the Ospreys on Pleasure Beach were  
seriously harmed by the storm.  From across Lewis Gut it could be seen that  some 
nests were completely blown off their perches and others were badly  damaged. 
Adult birds seemed stunned and confused. They were perched here and  there 
as if they were wondering what to do next.  
I don't think that any of the young had reached the fledgling stage,  
although a few may have been very close. Perhaps a few of those young birds  
survived the fall and will manage to fledge yet.
