Juvenile OSPREY still lingers on

The OSPREY was on show for a good half-hour (before we had to leave) from about 12:45 - easily viewable from the open access of Biggleswade Common at roughly TL185467. It didn't even seem perturbed by wildfowlers shooting all round it as it flew over the ex-Warren Villas nature reserve lake! (Steve Blain)
