OSPREY continues to draw the crowds
Mike Collard captured these excellent images of the Chess Valley juvenile OSPREY that I first discovered on 21 October. The bird has now established a well rehearsed routine of roosting between 1100 and 1400 hours on this dead tree just opposite Sarratt Bottom village and adjacent to the Crestyl Water Cress Bed Farm. The bird is marked on its left leg by a dark blue ring inscribed with the white letters ''MB'' and was ringed in Northern Scotland this summer.
