Cashing in on the Osprey-fest

Heysham Obs
Plenty of northbound Ospreys struggling against the wind and therefore coming into contact with human eyes at various sites this last two days, especially the Ribble flightline via Brockholes quarry (including a Dunkeld colour-ringed bird). An Osprey flew fairly low to the NNE over/along the NHW at "about 1400hrs" today. Could the observers please make contact so I can acknowledge your record - I only have a description of what you looked like from a third person!

Otherwise coverage affected by the dreaded work: brief NHW morning visit
Red-throated Diver 1
Twite 3
Linnet 2

2nd S Med Gull Leighton Moss. Ross's Goose and Barnacle Goose transferred the Pilling Lane Ends where on the sea at HT. Amphitheatre-like atmosphere at the public hide Leighton Moss with the resident GBBGs killing an intruder during a two hour show. Sanderling Cockersands. Osprey JBP today.
