very high tide, receding. 54F, overcast, rainy.
At 10am 3 eggs were in osprey nest, but neither parent arrived on the nest
Louise had not seen any ospreys on the nest since 9 am. Possible theory is
that this female is not that experienced being that on several occasions
the eggs were left exposed for long periods of time.
