Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo)
Another lovely day weatherwise, we certainly need some after the weeks of interminable rain. Being sensible I confined myself to the house and garden. There is enough there to keep me out of mischief for a long time.
While I was working about I kept hearing a Buzzard calling. I kept looking up but it was nowhere to be seen. Eventually when we were sitting in the sun having a cuppa I spotted it circling on the thermals. As always I didn't have the camera to hand so I dashed indoors. By the time I came out it had drifted away. Fortunately it drifted back a few minutes later. It was very high up and this is a very tight crop so not the best shot. When I choose a blip the chance of repeating it influences my decision, and this is one that is difficult to repeat.
Sue Middleton has suggested a tag of #KUS - keeping up spirits. Birds always lift my spirit so I am using the tag for the first time.
