Osprey and other things

Rather a good day birding with an ESP past the Whalebones in the morning and a nice selection of waders by Palace both in the morning and the early evening including three smart Knot, 12 Sanderling, a good number of Dunlin, a Whimbrel and in the evening a Ruff.

Back home I escaped from chores early afternoon to scan Loch of Bosquoy from the garden, everything went up and next thing I see is a large brown bird plunging into the loch. Seems the Osprey caught a small fish as it seemed to be heading straight for us, I was thinking it might perch up in the trees to eat its catch, but it veered off towards Corston and disappeared. A little later as I was sitting drinking a cuppa in the sunshine the Quail called and then chip, chip and four Crossbills flew into the trees.
