Just returned from a golfing break in Scotland. Weather waqs wet and windy but the golf was ok. I didn't manage any birding but travelling from the first golf course to the B & B, I drove past Catcleugh Resevoir which is on the A68 between Jedburgh and Corbridge. As I was passing it a bird soared over the road in front and I immediately recognised it as an Osprey. I watched it over the road and then it looked as if it was getting rerady to dive for food in the resevoir. Unfortunately there was nowhere to pull up and watch it but a bonus year tick anyway. I'm up early to do either Whitemoor Haye or Croxall but it is raining so I will be getting on with a few jobs today until football tonight.
