Ben Wurst and Larissa Smith of Conserve Wildlife NJ brought a team to the south end of Ocean City recently to erect an osprey nesting platform, replacing one that was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.
John Thornton, a videographer who lives on Dory Drive in the Ocean City Homes neighborhood, was on hand to film the work.
"I happened to look out the window a few days ago and saw some people erecting an osprey nesting platform off 55th Street in place of the one that was wrecked by Sandy," Thornton said.
"Naturally, I ran out and filmed what I could. It is such a positive story, the people who do this work are are so likable — plus a lot of us people in Ocean City love our birds."
