Missed an Osprey by 10 minutes

Arrived a wilstone hide to be told that a sparrow hawk had just scared the birds away and that a few minutes earlier an osprey had flown over.
Still managed to see a Common Sandpipper, lots of gulls about may be they have been blown in by the hurricane? A couple of Hobbies flew over then it was time to go.

Lunchtime foray

Thought I had see a distant Buzzard but it turned out to be a Red Kite, which is unusual over this way but becoming more common. The two Kestrels were chasing prey (Crane flies?), and seemed to be jousting each other at one point.
