Sorry, forgot to say that I got the link from another forum and thought I would pass it on.

Stunning as the action is, the precision eyesight deserves a mention. Being able to fly over rippling water at a considerable height, and spot a camouflaged fish some way beneath the surface is quite something.

That last fish made me chuckle as at one point it looks like the bird is surfing on a "skyboard" :)

That is amazing, I didn't appreciate how deep the osprey was prepared to dive

Did anyone else notice that after the second dive, how it was shaking itself free of water whist in flight with prey like a shaggy dog that's just come out of the water with a stick?

And after the third dive, when it eventually got hold of the trout with two talons, it looked like Bart Simpson skateboarding through the air with a wry smile to camera as it showed off...

They will always carefully hold the fish like that to minimise drag whilst flying.

I can't watch the footage, at the moment (on dial-up)...but the evocative descriptions given are a great trailer.
