Yet another OSPREY

Following Sunday's OSPREY at Tringford Reservoir, another was seen in Hertfordshire today.......

''My drive home from work was made considerably more enjoyable by seeing an OSPREY heading south over Park Street in St Albans. At first I thought it was a Red Kite having seen one near Park Street station earlier in the summer. But as it came closer that thought was quickly dispelled. It followed the course of the River Ver escorted, rather than mobbed, by four Jackdaws. I followed its progress from the A5183 until I lost it behind some houses just north of the M25. I felt it was continuing on its way but it might have stopped at the Frogmore gravel pits. It made my evening (Roger Hicks)
