For many years now, Mantoloking has had ospreys in town in summer. However, when I was little (early 80s), this was not the case due to DDT, and other factors. Happily, the ospreys have made quite a come back, and it is always fun to see them when they first arrive (often in April). This morning, they were particularly interested in a large crane that is being used for the Route 35 construction. Unfortunately, I don’t think that they have figured out that this is not a suitable nesting site.
