Buzzards at Moulsecoomb

We’re enjoying some decent spring weather at the moment and I’ve been exploring the Downs near work. To get away from the urban sprawl is a solid 15 minute uphill hike, but it’s worth it once you arrive.

These shots were taken on Tuesday, and are of three of the four buzzards that circled the fields. I also saw a kestrel and have had several sightings of a green woodpecker. But the buzzards were the standout sighting.

      Darko, I see them most days, but not usually as low as these ones.
