Hothfield Osprey, Oct 2023

An Osprey was reported by a keen-eyed birder on his local patch, at the Hothfield fishing lake on Waterfall Lane. 40 minutes later, we there and the bird still showing, if a bit distant from the available viewing area.

It was an unringed bird, presumably a juvenile. As the Osprey that was seen this time last year at Appledore was also thought to be a juvenile, it is unlikely to be the same bird. Juveniles typically take a year out, feeding in hotter climates.

A good looking bird, as are all Osprey.  A second visit produced more shots, including catching the bird in flight.
