Fishing ospreys

Posted by Gavin Bickerton-Jones on 7th July 2016 in Blogging | osprey,Scotland,jgwildlifephotography
Just back from a 3 day trip at Rothiemurchus fisheries near Aviemore on a tour run by excellent wildlife photographer and guide Jo Mcintyre, trying to capture ospreys fishing in a trout lake, something I had booked up about 18 months ago and counted down the days for!   Monday:  Up at 5.30 AM to catch flight to Inverness from Luton, after half an hour delay, arrive at midday. After battling my way through the golfers up here for the Scottish open, I got a taxi to the train station, and then a train for the 30 minute journey to Aviemore. Jo kindly offered to pick me up from the station (not part of the tour!), and I loaded my packed bags full of tri...
 

ospreys in Scotland part 2!

Posted by Gavin Bickerton-Jones on 2nd August 2017 in Blogging |
Just back from another 3 day trip at Rothiemurchus fisheries near Aviemore on a tour run by excellent wildlife photographer and guide ‘osprey Whisperer’ Jo Mcintyre, to witness and capture ospreys fishing in a trout lake. I stopped on the way up at a hide in Dumfries that the famous Sparrowhawk ‘Mad Max’ visits regularly for an afternoon, but apart from one fleeting visit when he rushed the small birds around the hide I didn't get chance to get a photo. I got some nice Red Squirrel and various other bird pics though, so not a complete waste of time.     Arriving on the Friday evening at 9.30, once again at the excellent Boat hotel at the nearby Bo...

More ospreys in Scotland!

Posted by Gavin Bickerton-Jones on 11th August 2018 in Blogging |
Just back from another 2 day trip at Rothiemurchus fisheries near Aviemore on a tour run by  ‘osprey Whisperer’ Jo Mcintyre, to witness and capture ospreys fishing in a trout lake again. Arriving on the Sunday afternoon at 3 PM, I had Helen with me this time as we were making a holiday of it, visiting the European Championship cycling in Glasgow, and then going over to Fort William post ospreys. We were once again at the excellent Boat hotel at the nearby Boat of Garten village, and after going for a walk around, met with Jo and some of the other photographers for dinner at 6.30. We had a nice evening, with Joe and Tom from the USA, Neville and Iain, all...
 

Rutland osprey

Posted by Gavin Bickerton-Jones on 18th April 2016 in Opera |
Nice morning spent in Rutland at a trout farm that is visited by the ospreys from Rutland water. One turned up at 6AM and perched in a tree for a while, before eventually diving in and leaving with a nice juicy trout for breakfast. Unfortunately the light wasn't fantastic which made getting decent photos difficult, and as there are no chicks to feed yet they only need one fish to start the day. The light never improved over the next 3 hours and we had no more visits so couldn't hone our skills, but still great to see the power and accuracy of the bird as it got his meal. Dropped into Thetford on the way back and the male Kingfisher spent 5 minutes fishing on t...
