An Osprey has been spotted circling over the lake at Sussex Wildlife Trust's headquarters
According to BBC, a rare bird of prey visited Sussex Wildlife Trust.
“Mike Russell, a tutor at the trust, saw the osprey flying over Woods Mill in Henfield, searching for fish. Staff checked with the Rutland Osprey Project which said it was an unringed juvenile, probably from Scotland.”
“Ospreys arrive from Africa in late March and April and leave again in August and September. Scotland is their main UK stronghold.”
The wildlife trust said there were a few ospreys in Sussex at the moment at both Arlington and Weir Wood reservoirs, and one at Thorney Island in Chichester Harbour.
Eventually, they will fly across the Channel as they migrate southwards.”
