While heading out to fish on the river a few weeks ago we went close by a local osprey nest. You must look carefully, but she had three little ones hunkering down in the nest which was so pleasing to see. Unfortunately, I stayed a little long taking photographs because she appeared to become concerned and let me know it by the majestic spread of her wings. Not wanting to loose part of my hair or an eye(!), I left soon after this photo was taken. Motherhood is same everywhere it appears except for those few species who abandon their young.
