Much to my joy Harriet, the juvenile Osprey from last years season, came for a visit. Her parents were nowhere to be seen but true to form she squawked and carried on, circling just above my head making her displeasure felt. She’s never liked me getting too close to the nest and squawked her head off from a few weeks old if I got too close. Her parents don’t mind but she will only land and settle down if I move back.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.

    Beautiful :)

  • Thank you, she’s a gorgeous bird but her parents are ‘shooing’ her away now because they’re breeding again which is kind of sad!

    Wonderful shot! Don’t be sad, she’ll be having babies of her own soon

  • Thanks Trish … you know Osprey are not sexually mature until they’re at least 3 so she’ll be on her own for awhile, hopefully she’ll survive the perils of the world.
