OSPREY roosting in tree

Whilst Joan, Anna and I were birding on the Berkshire Downs, JT took a call from an excited Clifford Smout. He had just found an OSPREY at Waterend, Wheathamstead, and it was roosting in a tree above the footpath. Knowing that Darin Stanley was working nearby, I phoned him and sent him down, with he quickly relocating it at around 1730 hours. Darin then very kindly kept on it until we arrived, the bird roosting happily until at least 1915 hours. I noticed that it was bearing a black or navy blue ring with the inscription 'FW' but because of very poor light, I only obtained the following record shots.......
