A burnt Osprey nest in Germany

near Roebel, eastern Germany

April, 2001

During a stay with Dieter and Anne Roepke after the "Fischadler Tagung in April 2001 an Osprey nest has burnt down.

Possibly due to a short cut because a branch had hit the power cable. It happened late in the evening. None of the Osprey was wounded, the huge flash seen by people living not far away
