Osprey at Strumpshaw Fen

Having a couple of hours free, and knowing that this long-staying visitor had finally settled into a routine of sorts, I found a space in Tower Hide at around 1.00pm and waited!

Plenty of visitors to chat with, including a couple of really pleasant birders from North Essex: it was one of these that first picked up the Osprey flying in from the east. It decided to fish over 'Accidental Broad' and I decided to risk running a couple of hundred yards to obtain a closer view: this I nearly achieved, stopping to grab photos on the way before the bird caught a fish and flew off south to eat it!
