|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Continuing the theme of close up studies, this is a juvenile buzzard (Buteo buteo). This one is a wild bird which was being monitored as part of a research programme. This photograph was taken at the nest site (with all necesary licences) about a week before the bird was due to fledge. |
Buzzards became extinct in most of England during the 1920's and 30's but over the last ten years have enjoyed an major comeback. At a conservative estimate we now have 70-100 pairs in my county, and that number is rising year on year.
This was a hot, but rainy day, and the buzzard was panting to keep cool.
