So I arrived in the afternoon at what looked like the peak of High Water and found Bob Davies there as the only other observer. A lone Osprey sat atop the Osprey nesting platform duly engaged in guarding and consuming a catch of Milk Fish.
Apart from the Greater Flamingoes I was able to observe a large number of Caspian Terns and especially a great number of Grey Plovers in breeding plumage.
Also present were a good number of what appeared to be Curlew Sandpipers also in colourful russet plumage although they were difficult to separate with just binoculars.
I could not find the Oyster Catchers which I had seen last week (about 16) and nor did I see any Whimbrel although I am certain they would both return to site as the tide recedes.
p.s. Note to Bob. Just as you left, a second Osprey tried to land on the platform and was quickly despatched. I missed the action unfortunately! I was looking at the Hole in the ground. I grabbed some quick flight shots but my Shutter Speed and Iso were too low. I just wasn't prepared.
Sorry to have missed it Howard and commiserations on not getting the shot you wanted but the head of the bird is perfect so is the missing head of the fish. It was on the platform again today consuming another fish, and I saw 2 other Ospreys both with fish at other nearby locations. Saw nothing else of real note though. Very quiet.
