Ospreys Head South

September 6, 2014 at 2:45 pm


Whilst walking around the reservoirs of Haslingden Grane this week conditions looked perfect for fishing Ospreys as they headed South to Africa. Like all birding you need an element of luck and while no Ospreys were present on the day that we were there what should turn up on the following day  –  an Osprey heading South! It reminded me of the glorious day I had filming Ospreys at the nest four years ago so I have included some of the photos in this week’s gallery . Click here

This years incredible breeding season continues and I still have two pairs of Barn Owls that have young in their nest from second broods. There can surely never be another breeding season like this one and in Greater Manchester alone more than 100 Barn Owl young will fledge this year.
