Just heard that an Osprey was observed catching a fish at Trimpley reservoir (12 miles to the north west) around midday (just over an hour after my observation) - possibly the same bird.

Wasn't expecting to see one around here in June. This is the 3rd record for the patch this year.

Below is the 'as the Crow flies' trajectory between Westwood pool and Trimpley Res.
