Ospreys again


A juvenile (I think) Osprey at Yakumo yesterday.

There were 3 Ospreys around, 1 of which was probably an adult (it could catch actually fish). The weather was humid and overcast, not great for BIFs.



This individual came fairly close at least.  Lots of very similar shots as you can see.



Not much else around. The only singing species was a Grays Grasshopper Warbler. Other stuff included Sand Martin, Little Ringed Plover and a couple of Great Scaup (a few individuals spend the summer).



I watched England trying to break a dogged last wicket stand for the second consecutive Sunday but it's fair to say it wasn't quite  so tense this time.........................

Thanks for clicking this link.......

  1. It's the kind of light a lot of HK's raptors are seen in...(mostly in winter), still, nice and close.

    Good results in the Ashes series so far.

    1. Hi Russell, I can remember your 8 series wins (mostly crushing) from 1989 until 2005. I'm sure you will inflict more misery on us in a generation or so.

  3. Super shots Stu. I guess you are using a 300mm or less?

  4. Did you have a trout stuck to your lens? - the way it's looking at you! Great BIFs - can't get a decent place for shots like that here unless you have a spare £125 for the fish farm pond :(

    1. Hi Stuart, Ospreys are pretty common here and Yakumo is a good spot as they gather around the narrow river mouth.........still very hard to get any kind of diving shot though, they almost always do it just that little bit to far away.
