Ospreys are winter migrants in India. Every year Ospreys come to the Purbastali Oxbow Lake in Bardhaman district of India in West Bengal.
I was actually trying to photograph this Osprey with a catch from early in the morning but it was sitting idle in the perch. Finally, around 09.00 it flew away to get the breakfast and I was waiting near the perch which I assumed the osprey would sit on.
After about an hour it came back with a fish and unfortunately sat on a perch which was quite far off from the location I was in. I had to cross the mighty Ganges river on a boat to get a decent shot.
Finally, after about half an hour of sailing through the Ganges, I was able to click the Osprey. I was happy that I started at 5.30 in the morning and was able to get a decent shot by 10 AM. All thanks to my boatman who understood how to reach the osprey without disturbing it so that it doesn fly away.[the_ad id="61677"]
