Well done on the Osprey Craig...you deserved it ;-)

Seriously though, you have had a great few patch day's since you got pack and birds like the Osprey are just rewards for all the hours you put in where you get nothing.

Well done Craig. Looks like some Arctic Skuas are heading your way from the Severn Estuary, keep an eye out! Paul
