No osprey presence yesterday, but in the evening a visit from an osprey nemesis ;)

And across the Pond here we are expecting over 30 cm here (>foot) over the weekend. ARGH! Time for food, wine and movies on the couch in front of the fireplace.
Not surprised Mike, it has turned really cold and snowy with us.

What a thrill for you, Mary, and I love the photos.
Couldn't resist, of course, tho matching up this one is a bit of a challenge but I know you are very tolerant ;-D
