Another Buzzard for Queensbury

             A surprise over the garage,  Common Buzzard

                                         Headed off >S

Another murky misty day today even over at Leeds this morning but a nice treat when I got back to work at dinner time. At 1300hrs the clouds lifted and the skies brightened for a short period but just enough for a Buzzard to show itself over the garage car park heading >W.
Just by a stroke of luck I went out in the car park to fetch the next job in and there it was, soaring high above me before motoring off towards Northowram.
A quick panic to the car for the camera , which unfortunately I only had the small one with me, but managed to get some record shots.
In my haste to get some pics, send a grapevine text out and ring NK in case he was around Queensbury south, I got no reply from Nigel but a short while after Nick Carter rang me saying he was returning my call, silly me had pressed the next name down instead of NKs.
Nick was at the time on Bempton cliffs in the fog so it was nice to have a chat with him, sorry Nigel.
