I'm bored with this migration lark - I fancy a spot of fishing
THIS soaring visitor has been taking a week off during a long migration with a spot of fishing at a popular Worcestershire pool.
The majestic-looking black and white osprey is heading south for winter and could eventually end up in North Africa.
But for now, according to wildlife watchers, the bird has seemed more interested in a long-stay break at Upton Warren sailing lake, at Wychbold, near Droitwich.
Dave Grubb and Dave Barnes both captured the hunter, which appears to be an adult, on camera as it swooped for a catch in the water.
Mr Barnes said the bird had left onlookers captivated. “It is being watched diving for fish six to eight times a day and being admired by birdwatchers, photographers, fishermen, sailors and the general public.”
The breed, which spends its summers in Western Europe, and the UK, begins heading south as the temperature drops, but stocks up along the way on food – which is what wildlife experts believe the Worcestershire osprey is doing.
