Queensbury Raptor Watch

            Buzzard doing a backward flip to see off the corvid
                                             Chase continues
                                            Corvids turn to flip

            Unfortunately the sun was between me and the bird



                 Away it goes unscathed
    Sparrowhawk decides to play dodge the corvid


                        The fun begins

                       Not as brave as the buzzard and retreats.

An hour out late afternoon found it to be a good moving day with several Herring gulls >W and LBB gulls heading >NW.
Raptors were out in force with 2 Buzzard, 3 Sparrowhawk and 4 Kestrels, a real entertaining hour.
