My first Osprey sighting, Wales, 6th April 2016

We visited the DYFI Osprey Project in Mid Wales earlier this month and I caught my first glimpse of an osprey known as Glesni sitting on a nest. As I was observing this beautiful bird, something caught my eye from the left. Flying over the lake was another osprey carrying prey. As if it couldn’t get any better, the osprey, known as Blue 24 landed close by and we were able to watch her devour her fishy catch, a flounder, for at least half an hour. Couldn’t have wished for a better osprey encounter. Amazing!
