Bird Update

Yesterday as I set off for work I noticed a buzzard being mobbed by four crows. Its a strange sight and how irritating for the buzzard. I mean there you are a majestic, large bird of prey minding your own business, lazily soaring about looking for dead carrion, when all of a sudden your set upon by a bunch of thuggish crows. It doesn't seem right really but I guess that's nature for you.

While we are on the subject of birds, in addition to the Blue tits that I saw yesterday, I spotted a couple of great tits hanging around the bird feeders this morning and Mrs BW has cleared a patch of ground and put some seeds down so the Dunnock is back.


I, like the view said...

I looked down from a great height on a flock of seagulls this weekend

it was a magnificent sight

don't know what sort of gulls - not the huge viscious ones that you get at the seaside, but slightly smaller. . .

will investigate a bird manual and report back in due course

Occasionally when I am walking in the Goyt I can look down on a kestrel. Aways gives me a lift.
