Fly-by

There’s nothing that gets the pulse racing more than large raptors. Descendents of meat eating dinosaurs these flying reptiles with feathers are always a delight to watch.

There are around five or possibly six Rough legged Buzzards in Norfolk at the moment. These wonderful large arctic winter visitors always invoke a feeling of accomplishment when we see one. They are never easy to find, often spending lots of time on the ground or perched. We came across one last week perched on an exposed bough of a dead tree. The way it magically appeared from nowhere as we scanned the rolling landscape only added to the Rough legs enigma. As it took flight we were lucky; it flew towards us. So spellbound were we, not knowing whether to just watch or to take photographs, I almost managed to miss firing off one or two shots.
