Osprey with pogie

I had been watching this osprey on the hunt for several minutes when I saw it drop down in the distance. I could see it had a big fish but the osprey was flying in the opposite direction further into the distance. It must have heard my silent prayer because it suddenly banked left and headed right towards me!
