Juvenile Osprey – Dhahran Waste Water Lake

The juvenile Osprey is still hanging around the Waste Water Lake in Dhahran. It spends quite a lot of time siting on one of the high voltage signs next to the lake but can also commonly be seen flying over, where occasionally good photos can be captured of it. My daughter first saw the bird when birding with me at the lake in early August and it has remained ever since catching Tilapia from the lake at frequent intervals. This is easily the longest staying bird I have seen on my ‘patch’ and hope it stays longer.
