Monday January 9
The fitters and electricians had finished by 2.45, still enough light to respond to this morning's phone tip-off.
We drove a narrow lane in our area, scanning carefully, until we reached the church. No sign. A bit much to expect the target bird to have stayed in the vicinity for 5 hours....
On the way back, Pam pulled in to the edge of a seeded field, just in time for a Rough-legged Buzzard, closely hassled by a Carrion Crow, to fly out and away from a nearby tree. Damn that crow! Great views of the pale barred tail as it flew, and then landed in a distant tree. I attempted a couple of pics before it flew again and we couldn't re-locate it.
Thanks again James, info much appreciated.
