Common Buzzard

A cool morning and clear skies often means that the Buzzards where I live will be up soaring and climbing the thermals.
They didn't disappoint at Woodford recently with a couple giving quite close fly pasts. One had been on the ground in a sheep field, while the other appeared from nowhere. The shots below are of it trying to gain height after leaving the field.
I love the call they give as they fly. It just lets you know they're around. Always a great bird to see.

  14. Th light on the buzzard is amazing. I love how it just touches a small part of it. Such an impressive wingspan. We have no shortage of buzzards out here in the boonies.

  16. Spectacular photos. I find it quite difficult to photograph birds. They always seem to fly away just as I hit the button.

  17. Buzzards are the main raptor that we see here in Normandy - I probably see at least one every day and sometimes many more ... and often at pretty close quarters too. Yet I never tire of seeing these fabulous birds. Many thanks for adding buzzards to #AnimalTales and thank you for being such a good supporter of the link up.

  19. Beautiful wings on that gorgeous bird ... I wonder what they sound like? Definitely not the bird we here in the American western states call a buzzard, which is really a vulture.
