Anglers all 19th August

We were heading back from a morning photographing Dragonflies and Butterflies at Druridge Bay and had reached our turn off at Hedgeley Bridge only to see a large bird land on the bridge railings, we immediately recognised it as being a juvenile Osprey. It dropped down to the river so we got out of the car and hurried across with bins and camera only to see it disappear down the river towards Hedgeley Ponds with a Common Sandpiper in hot pursuit, meanwhile a Kingfisher sat impassively on a rock by the side of the river,not a bad haul of birds seen in such a short period of time.
