A very quick update this evening. Here’s what was seen at Old Moor and satellite reserves today…
As you can see from the title, at 13:14 today an osprey made its way across the Field Pool at Old Moor, in front of Field Pool West hide. It then followed the road to Manvers Lake and was lost to view.
This was most probably the same bird picked up at Anglers Country Park, near Wakefield earlier this morning.
At this time of year osprey wend their way southwards heading towards their West African wintering grounds. They have been known to take their time about this process and may even hang around good feeding stops on the way.
It’s a reminder that early autumn is a time of change where almost anything can turn up anywhere!
Watch those skies folks!
It probably turned right at the A1M and then ....!
