A pair of buzzards live in the woods close by and we often see
them soaring over the fields (See the photo at the bottom of
the page) or perched on a fence or tree.
Buzzards are the commonest bird of prey in Britain.
Interestingly, buzzards were quite rare when we first moved here 25 years ago. Now, it is rare not to see a buzzard on any given day.
Thanks to Isle of Skye Falconry for the 2 beautiful close-up photographs.
