      I’d be a big bird of prey. An Osprey perhaps. Ospreys are related to eagles, but feed mostly on fish. I think they’re great. I like the idea of being able to see the world from above. And to fly over the sea like that. And I quite like fish. :mrgreen:

      There’s an Osprey sanctuary in the north of Scotland. We used to go there sometimes on the way to see my grandparents, which is where I first got to see these birds. Lovely place, in the middle of a forest in the Highlands. Just looked up their website, and they’ve got a live webcam in one of the nests!
