Close Quarters



Though Ospreys eat mostly fish, (99% fish) they have occasionally been seen eating other things, including birds, snakes, squirrels, etc.
Much to my surprise these Sparrows built a nest on the stuff hanging off the Osprey's nest and I wanted to share it. The Osprey could eat a baby sparrow for a tv snack!

Amanda this is a cracker of a catch. I am going to e-card this to my sister if I may - this is just briliant! Aren't animals amazing - wonder what happens that the ospreys decide not to have these for a TV snack and will it still hold when junior appears! Perfect shot with the Osprey head visible. Viv
