Juvenille Osprey

Juvenille Osprey at Blashford Lakes (2)

Over the autumn of 2015, a Juvenille Osprey has been resident at Blashford Lakes Nature Reserve in Hampshire.  The Osprey is best viewed from the Tern Hide, when it sits on a perch in the middle of the lake.  This perch is a fair way away, so the views are distant, and photos from here need a lot of cropping.

These two images I took on an overcast day – so not ideal conditions at all.  The shots are heavily cropped, even though they were taken on a 500mm lens with a 1.4x converter.  As you can see, they are not the best Osprey shots in the world, by a long way, but sometimes it is just nice to take some record of what you see when out visiting a reserve.

Whilst I was there and the camera rested on the tripod, I took this short video of the bird.
