Osprey at Castleshaw, South of our recording area

Hope no one minds but thought I'd share a couple of Osprey shots the wife and I were very fortunate to see at Castleshaw Res nr Delph on Friday

Weather was poor and all the shots we got are heavily cropped but it put on a great show. Hovering, diving and making two successful catches for around half an hour, before we lost it heading up the valley at the back of one of the large plantations.

It was superb to see such a stunning bird 'fishing' so close to home, an  amazing sight and a lifer for us both.
