Buzzard chasing its lunch.
A morning of just a few showers and even some sunshine was just what was needed to get out and see what I could find, I decided on a drive over to Siblyback and set off,only to get about a mile down the road when I noticed this Buzzard in a local horse paddock fairly close to the gateway, I pulled over and took some shots from the car,then pulled into the gateway thinking that it was bound to fly off as Buzzards do, but no, a few more shots and it was taking no notice, I then got out of the car and leant my 500mm lens on the fencepost, and he came closer, totally absorbed in catching worms and making short dashes in pursuit of invertabrates, allowing for some nice shots.I stayed for about forty five minutes before he eventually flew up onto a post. I was quite cold so went home and had a cuppa.Siblyback will have to wait for another day
