The aerial displays of the Eastern Osprey often feature two birds soaring together in a series of undulations, or one following the other on a weaving course. These may occur near the nest, which is a huge structure made of sticks, driftwood and seaweed. As the nest is used year after year, the material may accumulate to form an enormous pile of sticks, sometimes 2 metres across and 2 metres tall, with the size and shape determined by the nest-site and how long it has been used.
