The Rebuilding of the Osprey Platform

Here’s to the heroic team that took this mess

and made it a WONDERFUL Osprey Platfrom. And in Feb! See their progress below:
Mark Hally, Terry Shaw,Mathew Hally, Tina Green, Ed Haesche with completed Osprey platform on February 21,2018.
Here’s a personal letter from Tina Green to the Aspetuck Land Trust and Friends of Sherwood:
My heartfelt thanks go out to all of you. Thank you Aspetuck Land Trust and Friends of Sherwood for your donations to pay for the platform materials and to Terry Shaw and Mark Hally for building the platform. It was a great team effort to get the platform done and installed just in time for our Ospreys which will be returning in the next few weeks.
Thank you Mark and Mathew Hally, Ed Haesche, Deanna Broderick, and Gilles Carter who volunteered their time and “muscle” to help make our new Osprey platform a reality.
Terry and his team moved with precision and purpose and were awesome to watch in action.Our Osprey platform was the 65th Terry has built and installed in the state and it won’t be his last!
Thanks also to Jim Beschle, the park supervisor, and his hard working staff, who have supported my efforts to keep Sherwood Island State Park as a top birding destination in CT and in the northeast.
Our Ospreys will be arriving in the next few weeks and I will update you with a photo when they do!
Warmest regards,
Tina Green
