We have a local treat at the moment an Osprey visiting nearby Wykeham Lakes where unfortunately you can only visit with a fishing permit.
Yesterday afternoon at 3:00pm I was down the lane on the west side of the lakes looking for Blackcaps, when I looked behind me and managed a couple of shots of a slow flying raptor, an Osprey. Checking Birdguides I found an Osprey reported at 11:30am at the Lakes.
This morning the Osprey was reported again at 9:00am so we went straight down the road that our cottage is off and at the bottom of the road a group of birders had the Osprey sighted on a telegraph pole.
All shots very much record shots, I do not remember that the telegraph pole was leaning, oh well must hold the camera straight!
