Osprey at Rowsley

A call from Ken Smith yesterday alerted me to another Osprey on the River Wye just north of Rowsley. James and Pam got distant views in the afternoon but I couldn't see it as I passed coming home from work although the local fishermen told me in great detail how it had taken a Rainbow Trout right in front of them minutes earlier. I went back later in the evening but still no luck. 
This morning I was out early and found it sat in the dead tree closest to the road where it sat quite happily, occasionally glaring at a passing cyclist. This is presumably a non-breeding bird now, or failed breeder so it may hang around.
