Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.ukThere is a photo of a Garganey. And an Female Kestrel by Callum in  the 'Guest photographer.

  1. Hi Bob,
    These birds take great joy in chasing the male Ospreys hoping to get them to drop the fish, have never seen it happen yet but sometimes they really push it.
    Super set of images, I take these birds in flight, much easier than Terns.
    All the best, John

    1. Hi John, yes, the chasing of trying to fish for the Osprey after seems not fair, but, that is natural.
