We had at least 7 possibly more Buzzards over my home today mid afternoon  for a period of 30 or so minutes. 3 of the 7 birds came surprisingly low directly over Belton Lane School which my garden backs onto.

I was in the garden and not out and about due to feeling a bit ropey (nothing to do with beer by the way) and so was snapping at the Redpolls and Siskins in the back yard – no surprise there then I hear you say 🙂

I did get some good shots and with a little tweaking in photoshop you can see below the 3 different birds that came low and close for a few moments before soaring high into the sky to meet the other Buzzards.
