Thread subject: Today's update from Rutland :)

||A couple of nice videos - Link

||Thanks for that link, Anne! That was one big pike, I'd say - brilliant capture. And the fledging video was very good, too. Does make me think back to the DPOF days of anxiously watching that helicoptering.

||Great clips, thanks, Anne! What a wingspan!

||Thanks Anne. I must get out there again ! I love the way the other two chicks look at the one that is lifting off.

||We went out there today and took a picnic. The weather was very pleasant, sunny but not too hot. No mosquitoes this time but a lot of little noseeums. We had good views of the Ospreys and there were lots of other birds to watch too. One chick has fledged but was at the nest. Chick 2 was helicoptering and wing flapping while Chick 3 sat and watched.
Much excitement was being caused by a very small Spotted Sandpiper which had brought out the twitchers. Apparently it is a rarity but It didn't mean much to me and was too small for me to photograph.
I took a few pictures today but most of them were rubbish...I must learn how to use my camera properly. I put one or two on Flickr
Another nice thing was to see three baby Kestrels in a nest box outside the centre. Clear views through their spotting scope and they also had a webcam on them.

||That sounds like a pretty perfect way to spend a day. Such a shame they're having problems with the cam up there right now.
