2nd Osprey in a week.

We arrived at Abberton Reservoir at the Layer Breton Causeway at 8.30am to be told that the Osprey had last been seen at 6.30am,   we then waited until 12.45pm before it made another appearance,  but what a show it gave us,  weather wasn't too good but who cared.  This beautiful bird made 4 dives into the water without success and eventually made its way towards the main causeway where it was seen by others,  then at 2.10pm it gave another show at the Layer Breton end with a successful dive and flew off into the trees with a good sized Rudd.   During our wait we had a Bittern in flight probably the first returnee.  Other birds of note were a Black-Necked Grebe and a few Yellow Wagtails,  we spent the whole day but a good day in the Layer Breton Causeway.
