Fishing Ospreys

Post by Ross Forsyth » Thu Sep 01, 2016 3:16 pm

Well now that the Ospreys have began their long journeys back to Africa I guess I can call it a day for this years opportunites of photographing these amazing birds,a firm favourite of mine especially since
I started photographing Wildlife back in 2008.Lots of very early morning starts and some very high ISO settings anywhere upto 10000 as these birds don`t wait for the light to improve!
Anyway here are some images taken from a hide in Aviemore this summer.

No not Rothiemurcus,Gordon Mcleods hide in the centre of Aviemore,far more reliable location than Rothie.

Well done, cracking set of images. I've spent quite a bit of time after this beautiful bird but no luck so far. Always next year when they return from Africa.

Thanks for posting, you have captured them really well.

Gordon still very much there and adding new/developing hides again for next year,he had thought about moving I think but Resort ok with him continuing for now anyway.
