A walk in the rain. Ogden to Withins.

                                    Looking down the calder valley
                                            Soil Hill on the horizon
                                    Halfway to the Withins
Mixenden Res . 1 Hour after this photo an Osprey flew over.  DJS.
                                        3 wet boys.

Heavy rain and slight SW >3 easing slightly by 0915hrs.
Walked from Ogden to the Withins with the hope of Wheatear, Ring Ouzel, Stonechat , none of which were present.
As the rain eased with the south westerly the skies looked just right for Osprey and with the view I had down the valley I thought I was in with a chance. Image my thoughts when I just arrived home to receive a phone call from DJS saying an Osprey was heading up the valley Id just been looking down. A great tick from your kitchen window Dave, well spotted and thanks for the quick call.

Looks like it's going to be drizzle this week but let's hope for some more Pandion coming through!
