This nest has been built on a beacon, just beside the entrance to a yacht harbour

("Högsta fart, 7 knop" means maximum speed 7 knot)

We asked an old man, who was mending his boat "can you bring us to the Osprey nest, please?

"Where is an Osprey nest? He asked us. The man has passed the nest many times. The Ospreys were accustomed to the many boats passing each day. It only left the nest when we came close for the photos. The Osprey occupied the nest directly again.
