An Unexpected Surprise (1 Viewer)

Yesterday I was birding as ususal on Irakaya Farm, Qatar, and had stopped by a grey water reservoir.

Suddenly a large bird flew in over me and dived toward the water. An Osprey.

It felt like a miracle to see an osprey in the middle of the desert, but there it was.

I'd never seen an osprey fishing before so this was a lifer experience.

I'm so happy and managed to get some lovely shots, although not any good ones of the fishing.
