Am I the only birder not to connect with a Honey Buzzard over the past few days?! I made a quick call to my feeding station on Rawcliffe Moss this morning and had 7 Common Buzzards. In fact it was a warm morning and the Buzzards plus 3 Kestrels and a female Sparrowhawk were making use of the thermals.
I didn't have time for a proper mooch round but noted that Mipits, Skylarks, Chaffinch, Alba Wags, Goldfinch and Grey Wags were all on the move.
The only Buteo I have a picture of is this Rough-legged Hawk (Buzzard) in the hand in Canada. I know Honey isn't a Buteo but you know what I mean.
