Double Osprey Madness

Will and I watched at Flow Point this morning, where three juvenile Black-tailed Godwits and a flyover Yellow Wagtail were the picks of the bunch. There was no sign of any small wader flock, however, two Common Sandpipers fed on the marsh, and a couple of Redshank were amongst the usual flock of Curlew and Oystercatcher.

Just as we were contemplating leaving around 10am, the gulls and waders took to the air and two Ospreys flew in high from the north-east. They both circled for about 10 minutes, seemingly investigating the estuary, before gaining height again and flying off independantly of each other to the west.
