Some baby Ospreys

Osprey

Not great photos but an interesting scene. These 3 baby Ospreys must have been born very very recently. With the harsh light, strong wind and heat haze it’s almost impossible to get sharp clear shots.

Several pairs of Black-tailed Gull nest on the same rock and things went crazy when a Peregrine swooped in and grabbed a nestling. With my 2X T/C on and everything on a tripod it all happened too quickly to get any photos.

Temminck’s Stint

A crappy record shot but only my 3rd ever sighting of Temminck’s Stint (and my first in breeding plumage). There were 2 of them at Yakumo. Other passage waders around the last couple of days included Wood Sandpiper, Red-necked Stint, Pacific Golden Plover and Whimbrel.

At the same place as the stints were a fishing osprey and a calling Wryneck…
