Rough Legged Buzzard

On some days out on Crete I have seen Vultures circling my villa, not too happy about that :( See buzzards every day there, it is great watching them playing with their youngsters, the speed they get up to when they dive is amazing.

Red kites a plenty in Cardiganshire & funnily enough seen many when putting ruts in the M40 between Bicester & High Wycombe. Best view was an Osprey taking a small trout at Loch Garten near Aviemore.

You only have to go north of Corby (Northhants) for Red Kites now, 20+ breeding pairs! I've had a pair all Summer local to me but non-breeders I think? Excellent R L Buzzard by the way! Didn't make it to Gibralter point today, just local and then to RSPB Frampton Marsh, got most of this years waders, thrushes and gulls!!

Must have a birding day out in the Spring!

Nothing of note, 6 Common Cranes spent a couple of days there just before Xmas but flew off towards Norfolk coast! Peregrines hunting over the fields and lots of Redshanks (100's!).

Noticed a strange looking bird near the beach this summer (the feathered type please) and I swear it could of been an

Osprey.Do they get this far?

I think they migrate to Africa for winter, so its possible you saw one passing through.

I have to say I would rather be in Africa at this time!

It's good weather for seeing those rare birds, loads of them would have been blown of course or towards land.

In 2001 there was only a couple of pairs in Scotland, now it's estimated there is at least 250 breeding pairs in the UK
