I have wanted to see an Osprey in Dorset for years (I did see a pair a few years ago in late summer on their way to Africa). Yesterday I saw one clearly and another kind birder let us look through his telescope for a better view. We waited an hour and half for it to move but it just sat in a dead tree, eventually hunger got the better of us ( but not the Osprey) and we went home, looked back at the tree as we walked back to the car....and it had gone!!!!!
Also saw a rural fox, it's very common to see them in town now but not in the country. Lots of deer, Redshank, Godwits, Canada Geese, Little Egrets, Shelduck, Oystercatchers, etc...
