RE: Buzzards

Well I haven't been out on many walks recently as the Smithy is taking up all of my time, but the woods where they live is not far at all, & I haven't seen them or heard them for ages. Every morning I scan the woods & the surrounding countryside for any sign of them & I never see them - maybe it's beause the weather has been so bad? I've seen plenty of Sparrowhawks - just no Buzzards Sad

RE: Buzzards

Your probably right Sky. This weather isn't very good for Buzzard watching they prefer dry, windy days where they can fly around on the thermals. Keep looking for them though!!!

RE: Buzzards

I saw my first Buzzard this morning at the house! He was flying over towards the church! :)

RE: Buzzards

Yes, there is a pair, just a couple of miles from my house, I feel very lucky to have them and I know the farmer of the land so he gives me information about them, chicks etc.

RE: Buzzards

I heard the mewing of Buzzards this morning and eventually found them overhead - three of them extremely high up. What a lovely sound they made and what a wonderful sight! I wonder whether they are warning us of the storms to come?
