Wed 9th: At 1420 today we were shown a photo of an Osprey (certainly a this years model) taken flying very low over the South Drain on Shapwick Heath just 200 metres west of the Ashcott Corner car parkand just east of our viewpoint near the 'Scrape@,it had identical plumage to yesterday's Blue ringed bird. Followed up this sighting by moving onto RSPB territory and some 15 minutes later an Osprey passed West to East south of the 'Tor View' hide on Ham Wall dropping out of sight behind Loxton's. May well be the bird of yesterday that we photographed beside Meare Heath scrape. May hang around for a day or two hopefully
