Osprey - Newport

Canada geese (lots), greenshank x2, greylag goose, common sandpiper x 2, ringed plovers (many), dunlin x3 ish, little grebes x 3, goosander, kingfisher, sparrow hawk, buzzard, curlew, and last but definitely not least an osprey, which flew down stream towards the sea, then must have circled back as we saw it do it again from the bridge. It then circled back and roosted? On a dead tree branch about 100m?? Upstream from the bridge.
PS we saw a large adder basking in the sun and some long-tailed tits.
Quite a day!
