Abstract The breeding population of Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) in South Australia was estimated at ∼52 pairs in 2005. These were sparsely distributed (one pair/30.1 km of coastline) from the eastern Bunda Cliffs in the west of the state, to Kangaroo Island in the east, with most of the population on western and southern Eyre Peninsula in the Great Australian Bight region. Most nests were constructed on broken sections of coastal cliff and near-shore rock-stacks, with a small number on man-made… 

Reproductive activity in the Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) on Kangaroo Island, South Australia

The apparent elongated nestling development period found is comparable to that determined in other studies where fluctuating prey availability directly influenced nestling growth and survival, and may suggest the Osprey may be precariously balanced ecologically at the southern extent of its breeding range in Australia.

Nest-site selection by Eastern Osprey Pandion haliaetus cristatus in coastal south-eastern Queensland

With increasing human populations in south-eastern Queensland, the provision of alternative nesting options, such as strategically placed platforms, needs to be considered to ensure the continued breeding success of Ospreys in the region and to minimise conflict with humans.

CURRENT STATUS OF THE OSPREY IN THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS

The Osprey in the Cape Verde Islands is currently scarce, seemingly still on the decline and already extirpated in the southwesternmost islands.

THE BREEDING BIOLOGY OF THE OSPREY Pandion haliaetus ON THE NORTH COAST OF NEW SOUTH WALES

Breeding occurred in winter with most nestlings fledging in spring and occasionally early summer, and over 30% of diurnal incubation was carried out by the male, despite him being the sole food provider during the incubation and early nestling stages.
