Returning ospreys

April 15th, 2018

Another two male ospreys have returned to Rutland last week, 01(09) and 30(10). I went to Horn Mill osprey photography hide last Thursday. I arrived at 05.30 in a thick mist, steady rain and cold wind wondering if I was mad and considered going home. The rain stopped and it gradually got a little less misty when osprey 28(10) perched up in the willow ready to dive, still almost dark at 06.45. There is nothing quite like an osprey diving in front of you to lift the spirits, and so the day gradually got better with two new ospreys fishing in front of the hide
