I called in for a look at the water levels as it is due to be dropped soon, for repairs to the wall. On my approach a large raptor caught my eye, it was an osprey, a very nice surprise. After a bit of a flap around it headed off west, roughly following the canal line. I nipped over to Belvoir lakes to see if it may have gone there, but no luck. As to the water levels, well it’s still pretty full but when it does drop ( next month, I think) it could be good for a wader or two.
