Goodnight George ....baaaaah!
Yes, Eddie, and take a camera for us !
We have them 'next door' in Cambridgeshire. They have certainly spread quite quickly over to this side of the country. Didn't realise they were so responsive, though they obviously go where food is provided.
I'd never seen one, but then I'd never seen buzzards here before until this year, when I was startled to hear one 'mewing' over the garden.
Our birds of prey are doing well, after so many years of being shot or suffering from farming methods.
How wonderful:) Don't think they are here yet (in Warwickshire) but as Fred says the buzzards are spreading. I remember 15 years ago I loved seeing them on the Gower and around Symonds Yat. We travelled that way so many times and they gradually got closer and closer, we would look up on the journey and shout "buzzard!"
Now we get them not far from us, but I was gutted to see two as roadkill a few years ago:(
am flashing iphone for Abers passing HW but none have flashed back - yet?
I was born and brought up in High Wycombe and always know I'm home when I see the red kites over Stokenchurch. We were lucky enough to see the first two released some years ago.
