Early Spring Ospreys #1


We were on the west coast looking for Hoopoes but found only Ospreys..................which isn't such a bad thing.


Ospreys were everywhere yesterday. We got up early and saw several close by diving but missed the shot for various reasons. We reached the west coast and the breeding pair were mating and collecting nest materials.

Sometimes they flew by more or less at eye level but predicting where they'll fly and then actually being there ready is a spectacularly random pastime.




There were actually 3 around, one must have been playing gooseberry..........




They were bringing in sticks to rebuild their nest................
