Osprey (Pandion haliaeetus) in flight, fishing at dawn, Rothiemurchus forest, Cairngorms NP, Scotland, UK, July. Photographer quote: ""This female, caught at first light, has two hungry chicks waiting at her treetop nest in a nearby pine forest. As she took off with an explosion of water droplets, I knew it was the shot Id been trying to get for 3 days." Did you know? From just a single pair in 1954, ospreys have now extended their range throughout Scotland and through reintroductions, into other parts of the UK. The British population is now upwards of 200 pairs.
