Took a drive around the estuary a couple of days ago and came across this.

This is odd behaviour is it not? Saw a tv show recently where a raptor had to be rexcued due to its wings becoming waterlogged and it was unable to launch itself into the air until it had been moved onto a perch above waterline to dry out. Is that what was happening here or was the bird just cooling off with a quick dip?

Agree with Walter and Albert, that the shots here are beautiful

Ospreys make their living by diving for fish so they must have some way of not getting too waterlogged. Maybe this bird was trying to get rid of parasites. A while ago my wife and I encountered a bathing Osprey on an evening beach walk on Sanibel Island, though it wasn't quite as keen to get fully immersed (previously posted).

It is something I have never seen before. It flew off as I was taking the images and landed about 300m further down so I drove down to where it landed and as I pulled up it took off again, so it was'nt in distress.
Probably as jacamar suggested ,trying to get rid of parasites or just needed a bath to get rid of some BO.
It was'nt a hot day about normal for this time of the year about 20c,

I don't think so. I have observed this a number of times.
They seem to like to have dip, usually in shallow water.

Cheers,

More fun with the K1/F*300mm F4.5. I still need to get used to the control layout on the K1, and figure out how to mitigate the aperture wheel moving on its own accord.
