Our new warden, Andy Schofield, has just had an Osprey heading north over the new heath being mobbed by Buzzards. Ospreys are an annual spring migrant at The Lodge, so this hasn't really come as too much of a surprise. With the lake at The Nunnery, I doubt that the BTO listers will struggle with it either. 95 now...


  1. Hmmm... not the easiest of raptors at the Nunnery, lakes or not, but we'll do our best.

  2. Hang on a tick: Great Black-backed Gull AND Osprey on the same day?! Sounds like classic use of the 2-bird theory to me ;)

  3. Pure envy.

    To my knowledge Nick, Osprey never shows dark grey upperwings with a broad white trailing edge. ;-)

    Chiffchaff and we're level pegging...
