As you admire the view from this point, keep a watch for Osprey (Pandion haliaetus)
plunging feet first into the sea to catch fish. Ospreys are coastal raptors that hunt close to the shore – along cliff lines, in sheltered bays and river estuaries.
Each year two to four eggs are laid in September–October in a bulky nest constructed of sticks, on the cliff-top close to here.
The Osprey is listed as a ‘vulnerable’ species. In spring and summer both eggs and chicks are at threat from inquisitive people. Eggs can die in the cold air if the incubating parent is forced to leave the nest. Once hatched, chicks are less likely to be fed if the parents or nest are disturbed.
Observe, don't interact
Please consider your impact on wildlife:
• keep your distance
• use binoculars for that close-up view
• be especially quiet
• if you see two adult Osprey circling and calling above you,
move away until the birds stop circling.
This point was named after Mr George Tinline, acting manager of the Bank of South
Australia, who was on board the Osmanli at the time it was wrecked. While stranded
on the beach, one passenger, W. Leigh, drew many sketches of the encampment and the beach.
