Buzzard on the Lewes Road

I took this sequence in the middle of the morning today, just at the edge of the car park adjacent to the Lewes Road at Moulsecoomb. The buzzard was being bothered by numerous gulls, before a very persistent crow took over the job of seeing the buzzard off their local patch.

And a little bit of synchronised flying

The buzzard eventually gave up and flew back into the nearby hills.
