Cyclone over Upper Town, Osprey, Red Kite & Quail

Just back from a week in Spain and observed an unusual meteorological effect over Upper Town this morning which looked like a cyclone, a narrow column of rotating air. These are known as tornados when the column makes contact with the ground.

I was on Screetham Lane with a Quail calling intermittently, which has been present since Tuesday. 
An Osprey was sat on a post on the moor eating a fish before it took off in the direction of Ogston Reservoir, where there are up to three birds at present.

Late morning a Red Kite circled over Beeley Triangle.
Quite an interesting morning!
