OSPREY perched at Tringford - a rare sight at Tring Reservoirs

A superb juvenile OSPREY landed on the dead trees 100 yards out from the hide at Tringford Reservoir at about 1030 hours and remained in position until 1215, when it finally took flight, did a circuit of the reservoir and flew off low to the south. Dave Bilcock managed these two tremendous images above and in the two hours it was perched, 15 or so observers connected including DB, SR, Ben Miller, Mike Wallen and Martin Parr.
The juvenile BLACK TERN remained on Startop's End Reservoir, along with 8 YELLOW WAGTAILS and 30 alba Wagtails in the horse paddocks to the north, whilst Wilstone today yielded 2 DUNLIN (Ian Williams) and 3 RINGED PLOVERS, along with 4 COMMON GREENSHANKS, the 2 adult WHOOPER SWANS, 1-2 HOBBIES and 2 WATER RAILS.
