I let you down today, MIke - I didn't check this thread so didn't see your post, and on my way thru the footage today I decided that the focus wasn't good enough to warrant repetitive snaps/videos.
Recycle bin came to the rescue, I almost wished it hadn't
The egrets especially were on-cam for a long time but I had to omit a lot due to so many cam-jerks

20 November - bits from the morning before the cam went down.
I've no idea what bird this was and have not taken time to research it, due to time constraints. It has been very severely up-contrasted and up-coloured, so I hope I haven't distorted it for ID purposes:
"Swans taking off like a Stratocruiser with only 1 engine "
(YouTube says it's still processing the HD version - I say "Good luck with that".)
It's a Redwing Scylla - they over winter here. And, looks like a Buzzard on the Osprey nest to me. Thanks for videos and lovely capture. Brilliant vid of the Swan take off and flight ! great stuff

Thank you, Cirrus! I don't remember seeing it before, let's hope it appears often enough to sink in - it's a very nice-looking birdie, IMHO
Well, it's pinky bits didn't show up particularly well, probably a female or youngster.
