Not disheartened (well a bit really) I headed over to the flashes and as soon as I entered the new hide I saw the Osprey straight away on a post about 100m away.What a great looking bird!!!! I was well chuffed and I rattled off a few distant shots.
I then made a major error.I had waited for 90 minutes for it to do something but it would not move off the post so I thought I'd walk back to the sailing club hoping it might head back there and do some fishing.I didn't find out till a little bit later but it flew off just as I left the hide and flew to the sailing lake where it caught a Roach and flew back to it's post on the flashes.All the togs that stayed on the sailing lake bank got cracking shots of it catching the Roach.Bugger!!!!!
There were quite a few other birds around besides the Osprey.Here are a few.
