Another excellent session in Pete Whieldon's Woodland Hide at Otterbourne, near Winchester. The weather was better than for my June visit, and the male was looking much smarter having finished his moult.
The male and immature appeared alternately at about hourly intervals until a last, mid-afternoon visit when both appeared together.
