1 Buzzard.........................>SSE

The Buzzard took me by surprise late afternoon as I walked out into the car park and there it was high up but soaring. A panic attack then into the office for the camera and back out to find it gone. A dash round the corner of the garage to see it heading away over the mill at speed but luckily it decided to do a soar round the mill chimney giving me just time to get a quick but distant record shot between the house chimney stacks with the bridge camera.
