All three OSPREYS were duly present at Abbotts Hall (Essex) today; one in the dead tree opposite the Wetlands Hide and the other two at the eastern end of Salcott Channel, just as yesterday. Two of the three were seen to catch and eat fish. After the surfeit of Spotshanks and Greenshanks yesterday, there were very few of either today. Two COMMON SWIFTS also flew over the Wetlands Hide.
