Well the information from Tim at Rutland Water got back to me quicker then I expected, seeming how busy the reserve is with visitors, the preparation work for Birdfair and Osprey monitoring. Normally when reporting bird rings you can either get a slow response (one took 3 years once!) or no information at all, that's been my experience anyway. So to get a response so quick was brilliant...especially given how bad my information recording turned out, check previous post, it got slightly worse though lol.
When you think about it that's a long way from the nest and pretty impressive, and this is the second time this year I've seen it at this location, I was wondering if it had caught a fish would it be for itself or would it scoff it and then regugeitate it back at the nest, it surely wouldn't try carrying it back whole in it's talons...it would be mobbed by every corvid and Buzzard on the way back. Sadly it squashes my theory that we might have had an osprey nesting in Northants...for now.
