The Rough-legged Buzzard.

With a bit of sun early in the day yesterday I was up with the lark and went to see the Rough-legged Buzzard at Jevington. Unfortunately for me the Buzzard had a lay-in so after a couple of hours I had to leave without seeing it!! (No larks either). Not long after I left the Buzzard was seen of course. 

Today, after dropping Pen off at the hospice I went for another go. It was showing pretty well all the time I was there, although quite distant. It dropped down on prey several times whilst I was there so it seemed to be feeding well. Only a few pictures taken as it was really good watching this fabulous bird through the binoculars. It was also obvious that with the poorish light and the distance it was away there wasn't going to be any great pictures anyway!!
