See my collection of buzzard photos taken this year in Thanet, Kent. All photos taken from my garden as they fly over.
The 2020 pandemic has actually given me more time to spend on specific projects I've always intended to do but not had time to do in the past, one being birds of prey in my local area. It has been quite staggering how many I've seen this year from the garden, from Red Kites, Kestrels, Sparrowhawks to the UK's most common bird of prey the buzzard.
Because I've studied seagull behaviour for many years it has made it easier to know when birds of prey are around, my local seagulls give me the heads up with a warning squawk, which I've learnt to distinguish from their other squawks.
