Swalesmoor, p.m.

                       1 of 2 very distant Buzzard


Went to my watch point on Swalesmoor late afternoon hoping for a repeat of yesterdays aerial display but this time overhead, wrong again.
All was quiet in the stiff E>5  till eventually all the corvids went up and 2 Buzzards could be seen but near to the ski slope. Next decision was, stay put and hope they come back my way or scramble back to the car and drive on Swalesmoor. With time running out I decided on the latter, wrong again.
By the time I got to the other end of Swalesmoor the whole shebang was heading back towards where I had come from and as the corvids gave up and headed back for Ringby Top the 2 Buzzards drifted right over my watch point before crossing over the Halifax Rd and disappearing over Oats Royd, so the nearest I got for a shot was once again about 1 mile away.
If anyone has any decisions they want making don,t ask me , although I should,nt grumble , to actually have Buzzards around Queensbury is unbelievable.

Below are a couple of Wheatear shots taken and sent in by Tracy Collier over Ovenden moor today,
Thanks for those Tracy.

  Length of the legs and breast colour puts it a good
 candidate for a Greenland to me.
