Off Patch Osprey

19th August - for the third consecutive year, I saw an Osprey flying south(ish) down the valley where I live - just a few miles to the NW of Little Marlow GP.  Just after 1:30pm, I watched the bird flapping steadily just to the east of my garden, fairly close and quite low down.

Curiously, the run of records is as follows:

August 22nd 2010
August 22nd 2011
August 19th 2012

It makes me wonder whether it is the same bird involved, using a known migration route, or whether it is just coincidence.
