Visited my local buzzards again today, on arrival a bird appeared above me and flew off down the valley, a new bird Ive not seen before, it looked like a young bird in its second caldender year. It was quickly followed down the valley by Rusty the local orange tailed bird, that looks to have taken over the missing dark birds territory. Both birds reappeared a few minutes later and flew back up from wence they came. Also had 2 Sparrowhawks, 2 Kestrels, 50 Stock Doves, 1 calling Golden Plover, 1 Curlew, 1 Grey Wagtail, 8 Skylarks, 11 Lapwing and 15+ Common Gulls.
