Bowland - Ospreys - 14th April 2008.

A two Osprey day today bringing my total locally this spring to 8 birds, my best ever haul! The first flew NW over Whitray Fell at 13:45, having gone through Stocks Res some 30 mins earlier, whilst the bird in the image above appeared high over the bay nr the old hide at Stocks just before 18:00 then flew north. Two male Hen Harrier, Merlin, Red-breasted Merganser, Ring Ouzel, Short-eared, Tawny & Little Owls were other highlights during an enjoyable day in the Bowland area, rounded off nicely with 3 roding Woodcock at St. James Church, Dalehead, at dusk.
