Hi Sean
it seems that I have now joined the long list of birders who have been cursed by the Broad Lough Osprey. I firmly believe that bird waits until a birder leaves having spent at least three hours before it appears. Yesterday I sat from 1.15 to 4.15 at Broad Lough without any joy. It turns up at 4.30pm. Birding is great, isn't it!
