River Dart

The Osprey again this evening on the River Dart viewed from the first gateway on top of the hill, 500 yards south of Galmpton Quay. Arrived at 5.10pm, and at 5.15pm I picked it up circling over the far hillside then estuary and then caught a fish off Dittisham Point, at its third attempt . It flew back over the river and landed in the same set of trees that Dave described yesterday. It remained there till 5.30pm but it then disappeared after momentarily taking my eye off it. Also a Sandwich Tern at Galmpton Quay.
