The hide was packed but thinned out pretty quickly allowing me a premium spot :-)
To my relief the Osprey has sat on his perch allowing some good views (if a bit distant). Next to me was a nice gentleman with a small Bushnell scope. I am in the market for something like this as I sold my 80mm scope as it was a bit heavy and cumbersome for me. He was more tha happy for me to have a go. The Osprey looked much better through this bit of kit. The field of view was narrow but the detail was good. i liked it... Might have to get on ebay later.
Anyway the Osprey didnt do a lot. At one point it flew about 10 feet from one dead tree to another and then it sat there and sat there. After about 40 minutes I admitted defeat but not before a Female Marsh Harrier flyby and a brief view of a Kingfisher.
Hopefully he will hang around for a bit and maybe think about coming a bit closer.
The crow tried to stir him into action but it ultimately failed...
Well at least it was in sunlight.
