    Driving along the M5 south of Bristol, my partner and I caught sight of a buzzard soaring close to the carriageway, we were both silent for several seconds, just taking in the sheer majesty of him, Incredible! A moment never forgotten.

    My moment of magic There are so many moments; should I tell of the few minutes that a buzzard and I looked at each other from about 5 feet apart (due to the path being higher on the hill than the tree); or of suddenly hearing choughs high above me on Islay alerting me to their fantastic aerobatics above...

    Our usual path and there above the pastures hovered the Kestrel, we stood in awe and then over the copse on the hill ahead swooped two Buzzards mewing to each other and riding the thermals with ease,our elation and joy at such a wonderful scene.

    Stuck in a traffic jam, a buzzard caught my eye as I gazed out of the window. It gradually gained height, but we had plenty of time to watch every lazy but powerful wingbeat as it lolled in the sky above us.

    With the recent frosty weather we've had the delight of a buzzard regularly visiting our bird table which is about 10 feet from a window. It's sheer magic seeing such a wonderful bird of prey at really close quarters

    My husband and I were out for a run on Sunday and noticed a buzzard sitting on a post at the side of the road. He stopped the car a short distance past it and I opened the car door to take a photo - it sat long enough to get this shot.

    I live in Stafford. On April 28 I heard a buzzard cry, a common occurence these days. Upon looking up I saw a group of buzzards circling, to my amazement I counted 15. I found 22 birds in one picture, attached. Does anyone know the reason for this?
  • Blog Post: Getting a lift

    This week, we've had the pleasure of watching up to four buzzards at once, while seated at our desks (and working hard, obviously). Mostly, they spend time going round and round in circles, as if going up a spiral staircase. They're riding 'thermals', currents of warm air caused by the...
  • Forum Thread: Buzzard or kite??

    Hello, I was just standing in my garden (Withyham, E. Sussex) when I heard a mewling sound waaaaaay up high. I've been told there were buzzards around, I saw the bird, far off but large, so looked on bird identifier and listened to the calls. It sounded much more like a red kite than a buzzard...
  • Forum Thread: Is This A Buzzard?

    My friend and I have just come back from spending a few lovely days in North Wales.

We're not very good at identifying different birds of prey, but someone we showed...
  • Forum Thread: Plough the fields and splatter...

    On Friday the local farmer was finally able to plough the fields which have been water logged since last spring. This happy event brought two flocks of squawking seagulls which swirled around above like water going down a plughole before swooping down for the worms. This event was watched by four buzzards...

    I was a bit late setting off for work this morning because I got distracted .. I was watching the garden as I usually do for GBW, and spotted this unusually large shape flap into the trees beyond the field - so getting on for half a mile maybe. I nipped to get the camera, and as I opened the window...

  • Forum Reply: Re: A rare visitor

    I don't get kites in my part of the world - West of Scotland - but the buzzards have been hovering over the house recently. I remember an incident a couple of years ago when working in my garden, a couple of crows chased a buzzard between my house and the neighbours and came to ground across the...
