A bird in hand is worth 2 on migration

First osprey arrivals were noted at Loch of Lowes and Rutland Water last week and around the Bassenthwaite valley people have been keeping their eyes peeled for a first sighting here. Today, basking in the Spring sunshine there is a bird eating a fish on the nest tree. Not sure if it is one of ours or a passage bird – but lovely to see! Along with the chiff-chaffs that are now falling in from the sky and making the spinneys and copses and willow car resound.
