Below are a couple of shots from David Steele of the Osprey near Fivemiletown yesterday. It was eating a fish on a roadside pole, giving views down to 50m from the car. The heavy brown streaking on the chest would strongly indicate a female. It then flew to nearby forestry where it stayed for over two hours before flying off high to the south. Note the pale blue ring on left tarsus visible in the top shot.
