  2. A beautiful bird. He lives close to me and often visits the surroundings of our house. He hunts on the phone. I once saw his attack on a single starling. He could not do it. The starling ran away.

  4. Hi Bob,
    Wonderful to see the images of the Buzzard, a bird I enjoy getting images from.
    Appears to be a very dark bird but they do vary so much in the colouration.
    I find very often the second you stop the car they are away, or as soon as you pick the camera up likewise.
    All the best, John

    1. Hi John
      It was getting late, that's why it looks dark. Yes, I have been driving a back from the Forest of Dean, when suddenly I spotted it field, I stopped the car. So it flew up into the trees. I was lucky.

  8. I keep forgetting that what you call buzzards we call them hawks! Our true buzzards are really a little ugly.
