I've just had an Osprey fly over my house (in Ashby de la Zouch), being mobbed by two Buzzards! The nearest that I have seen an Osprey to here before is at Rutland Water, approximately 70 km (45 miles) away. No photo - I was so surprised that I forgot to pick up my camera. It seemed to be heading west. I think that I'd have forgiven it if it had taken one of the Koi from my pond, as it would have been a great garden tick!!!
