Very nicely caught. I took a picture of one recently and found I just had a photo of the branch :-( Like.
Best wishes, Rosa.
I am still trying to get my head around this one Peter.
Over here our buzzards are ugly, illkempt creatures with rubber heads designed for extracting meat from carcasses.
Your British variety including this which might be, according to Blandfords Birds in Colour a Rough-Legged Buzzard (but I don't really know) are much more attractive and seemly.
Were you lucky this day or do they come here often ?
Irregardless, I like it!
Hi Rosa and Jethro
This wood is at the bottom of the garden, and for the last four years I have been lucky enough to see quite a few youngsters. i don't think the actually nest in the wood, but the young congregate there after being able to fly.
Three years ago was quite amazing as on four occasions I heard their shrieking and this gave sign that the mother was approaching. If she approached over the houses she would drop the food at a height of say 30 feet and one of the two or three youngsters would be out to catch it within 20 feet from the ground!
All the best Peter
