Clennon Valley

While sat in the front garden taking some photos of the well trained Black Redstart still in my Garden the gulls lower down the valley suddenly got very agitated all circling above the eastern most pond; below them was a hovering Osprey I turned the camera toward the bird but it dived into the ponds, eventually circling up high enough to see it had caught a good sized fish (Roach?) after some soaring it flew off west toward the Zoo. A couple of distant record shots...
