Bird like this coming back to quarry (6)


I believe the answer is:


'bird' is the definition.
(osprey is a kind of bird)

'like this coming back to quarry' is the wordplay.
'like this' becomes 'so'.
'coming back' is a reversal indicator.
'to quarry' becomes 'prey' (synonyms).
'so' back-to-front is 'os'.

(Other definitions for osprey that I've seen before include "Lakeland bird" , "The fishing eagle" , "Large bird preying on fish in inland waters" , "Bird of fine feather" , "A feather trimming (6)" .)
