Osprey seen locally

  Took a few trips down to see the Osprey that's been seen 

  locally for the last 3 weeks, what a bird, it was fantastic 

  to watch it Diving and fishing, I was shocked to see it fly 

  about 300 feet up into the air still carrying a fish, I thought it

 would just perch in a tree to eat it. Also seen were 3 Sparrowhawk

 2 of them hunting together, Kingfisher, Buzzards, and 8 Jays.
