Osprey! 2nd April

Posted by meg33 on April 2, 2011 at 2:47 PM

Started off at Soddy Gap

Bit rough this morning but

7 Chiffchaff and a Willow Warbler Singing, Willow warbler full week earlier than last year and 2 weeks previous years before that.

Redpoll, 3 Buzzard,1 Raven, 2 Stock Dove  Herring and LBB Gulls, usual wildfowl and a few Skylark.

Then i moved onto Bassenthwaite lake to see if there were any Ospreys about, i wasnt to be disapointed. I Watched a male Osprey fly from the south of Bassenthwaite lake to catch a fish then circle high. Then in the same scope view a Goshawk put on a small display.

Plenty of hirundines high up probably all Sandmartin,, 1 did shine blue in the sun so could have been a Swallow.

Upto 8 Common Buzzard, Red brestend merg, loads of teal, tufted and wigeon but surprisingly NO pochard, 14 Ferel Barnacle, Geese flew over, 250 Cormorant, 1 GG Grebe and a little grebe.


Osprey...well you get the idea.
