April Highlights.

 On the 11th April I had two Osprey encounters and managed to get photos. I sent these to John Wright of the Rutland Osprey project. He was able to confirm that the first bird was a female,(broader wings and more barrel chested), and the second was a male, on which you can just make out a ring on the left leg. He thought it almost certain that both were Scottish migrants.

 Dave Wright found this smart drake Garganey at the Outflow on April 30th.
 Seemed tired after no doubt battling against the stiff easterly wind.

 A pair of Grey Wagtails were busy feeding three recently fledged juveniles on April 30th.
