We have Ospreys

Just put the kettle on to boil for some afternoon tea. Wife has gone to sit out in garden chair. Directly in front of us are three big six foot plus wingspan eagles, wingtipping and wheeling less than fifty metres away. At first I thought two were juvenile Bald Eagles bullying another adult for food. Picked up my bird identification book and realised my mistake. We have a pair of Ospreys nesting nearby.

I am amused by this, don't ask me why, but I'm greatly pleased.
