Frogmore Creek - Osprey

1 Osprey on Frogmore Creek, 08:10, just upstream from Geese Quarries opposite "The Secret Garden" for those in the know, sitting on a channel marker post at SX758416. At 08:30 took off to hunt rising tide, passed over Ham Point and into Fleet Head Bay, known by others as Northpool Bay. Seen to dive but lost behind the point and not seen again. Lack of telescope and angle of sun made searching the head of the bay difficult. Virtually 52 years to the day of my first ever on the R. Yealm upstream of Steer Point in 1965!
