April Ospreys #1




A beautiful spring afternoon was spent west of Hakodate where I found some Ospreys fishing close inshore...............


One of my fave summer visitors. always a pleasure to see them. This one dived somewhere out of sight and when it popped back into view a Slaty Backed Gull robbed it of its catch.





I missed several great shots by being in the wrong place at the wrong time, they struggled to carry the fish inland into a strong westerly wind and were flying low for a change.

There seemed to be just one pair...............

Lots of very similar shots, but forgive my indulgence.






These photos are all only slightly cropped, they ignored me as they went about their business.............





Very blue skies, balmy temperatures and Ospreys. A great Sunday despite a nasty hangover...............
