Local birding: Brockholes Wetland LWT - 9th August 2008.

Put the time in during Spring and you should connect with an Osprey at Brockholes, but you can never be confident of connecting with one in autumn. So this bird, my 11th locally this year and dramatic as always, was both welcome and somewhat unexpected. The bird appeared as a heavy, prolonged spell of rain was setting in and to see one actually catch a fish onsite was an ambition realised.
