Osprey s living the new high lifeA company has gone to unusual lengths to protect a nest of osprey chicks which made a home on a moored barge in the Pilbara.

Marine and Civil staff built a special platform for the birds after discovering two chicks on the moveable support legs of the barge at Point Samson boat harbour.

The company carried out a carefully-planned, 45-minute operation with Pilbara Wildlife Carers to move the chicks to the platform.

The move appeared to be successful with the parent ospreys returning to the area 20 minutes later.
