Osprey!

Heard the Oystercatchers having an aerial breakdown that sounded more frantic than usual as I pulled up outside the Ainsdale Discovery Centre for work this morning and looked skyward to see this Osprey plugging north over the frontal dunes at 0825.
Surprisingly the gulls ignored the raptor as it sailed north about 100ft up.
Brilliant.
Smiley face way to start a day – but it was always going away from me by the time I fumbled the “point and press” out of my rucksack…
