Osprey - River Gwash Trout Farm Near Rutland
My second visit to the River Gwash Trout Farm near Rutland Water proved successful after I dipped previously. We had three total dives into the pond, one from a young bird 1J and then two from an older/larger bird 28. Light wasn't good for the first dive at 6am but the next two at 7am and 7.30 am were better. Reasonably happy with a few shots but I wasn't expecting the birds approach to be so quick, hence only exit or perched shots. Perched shots used Canon 5Dii plus EF 300mm F2.8 with 2 x TC. Action shots with 1DX and 100-400mkii.
