Ever wondered what it feels like to be a bird flying down onto a nest? Well I have ... and not only that I had a chance to see for myself!
Lucky for me I went up in a cheery picker twice to view 2 of the pole nests whereas the first I saw from the top of a long ladder. The cherry picker was amazing!!! The nest, lofted stance, hovering above and beside - a bird's eye view! Of course the hot sunshine, the blue skies and the clear visibility topped it off. I felt on top of the world. What an extraordinary life birds have.
Whilst I gazed in and marvelled at the huge nest all dressed so beautifully I imagined an Osprey family filling it up, female on the rim, male on the lovely natural perch, 2 or 3 chicks in the nest. Fingers crossed it is only a matter of time...
So many thanks Darren! (Friends of the Ospreys) for taking me up and giving me the gift of this wonderful experience.
