Female Osprey on a cowpat

This female Osprey was sitting on a cowpat with the remains of a fish. As we watched her a passing Marsh Harrier flew low over her head shortly followed by a juv male Montagu's Harrier. Then the gusty wind began blowing sand through her, creating one of the best scenes i have ever seen. It will be the nearest i get to seeing an Osprey sitting in the Sahara Desert, for the time being at least.
