I spent Wednesday at Derwent Reservoir with at least three Ospreys two Buzzards and a Peregrine. The Peregrine was mobbing the Ospreys trying, without success, to take the fish they were catching. It even had a go at some Greylag Geese. All the images here are large crops as the birds never came close enough for decent shots.

It then turned its attention back to the Ospreys

Landing with a fish

Even this gull thought it might be in with a chance of getting the fish. It eventually left the Osprey alone to finish its lunch

It flew to a branch on the shore line to eat it

While the other one landed in a tree. It was still there when I left
