Facts About Ospreys
In 2001 ospreys also bred at Rutland Water, the result of an imaginative translocation programme, with young birds from Scottish nests moved and released at the reservoir. Often a pair will build a nest and establish a territory in their first year together and will return to breed the following year. Ospreys, especially the males, usually return to breed in the area in which they fledged.
Ospreys are very vocal and you at times will here them before you see them, they will use all the pond area to fish, when they dive they come down at some speed with a great plunge and splash its after the splash that you want to start taking your shots but easy said then done these birds are fast, you don't want to fire of your camera fill the buffer just to have a load of splashed shots where you can't see the bird, then the Osprey flies out of the splash with trout in talons' flies right by you but now you can't take a shot your card is still buffing, SO its all about timing and if you are lucky one diving Osprey my do a false dive and hover briefly above the water then fly slowly over the pond "happy days".
