Gone Fishing

August 12, 2018 at 12:02 pm

No visit to Speyside is complete without a visit to the lake where Ospreys come to fish. Unfortunately as this is situated in the centre of Aviemore the Ospreys come to fish early, very early, in the morning. I was in the hide before 4.30 am and by 5.00am three Ospreys had already left with a fish each. As the sun did not rise until 5.30am there was insufficient light to take any worthwhile photos. By 6.30am all the Ospreys had gone and there had been eight fish caught and one missed catch. Only on the last dive was there enough light to freeze the action. It is a big technical challenge for anyone following in my footsteps but , hopefully I will be back next year to take the ultimate photo!! Click here
