Osprey captures attention

Eastern Ospreys (Pandion cristatus) seldom look twice at Tyto lagoons.


But this bird made several passes over the water today after coming up empty-taloned with initial plunge. Improved my capture - did nothing for bird's appetite.

Gidday Chris and thanks. Just wish my in-flight handheld tracking came with rock-solid muscles!
