Garden Buzzards

With a pair of Buzzards having bred in the woodland next to my garden and regularly sitting in the trees nearby, it was a good opportunity to entice them down in front of my hide to try and photograph them. Surprisingly, it didn't take much effort and within less than a week I now have one regularly perching before the lens and a second bird which puts in an occasional appearance. I am having to photograph them at a distance to start with, as they are understandably wary. Hopefully they will get used to the shutter noise and I will move closer as the winter progresses. Here's a couple of the first shots.

Stunning shots, Steve, and evidence again that fieldcraft and patience really do pay dividends. Wonderful work.
