An Osprey day

Walking in to Prior's Fen this evening I was partly miffed at disturbing a perched Osprey from a tree, but justifiably chuffed at finding one non-the-less! It flapped lazily away, circled the pits a couple of times before heading off eastwards. My second local Osprey of the year following one in spring at Orton Brick Pit.

The pits themselves proved entertaining with four Little Egberts, Dunlin, Greenshank, Common Sand and Ringed Plover.

On the way back I racked up a couple of Buzzards, a Whinchat and a Wheatear. Well worth the effort!
