Thanks all.

Image taken at Rothiemurchus Fishery. They hold daily photographic sessions throughout the months the ospreys are resident. No guarantee of action of course, but they are pretty regular. The other issue is the size of the fishing lake, today a lot of the dives were on the far side from the hides.
