Seen from the garden! Appeared flying in from the north, circled a few times then headed directly south in a straight line quite fast. Been waiting 17 years for one to go over! Magic.

Negative news
Whilst walking the dogs we could hear seagulls calling and screaming (This is Berkshire and we are nowhere near a tip) as they came into sight they were high and mobing a larger bird. It was clearly not a Kite nor a Buzzard both are common here and their wing shape is known to me, I suspected Osprey 'passing through' I noted wing pattern and colouring with my wife as witness and checked with my field guide back at home and confirmed 'Osprey' a first for me and I never expected it to be in Berkshire.
