Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Extended hospitality…

I mentioned we’d had a lot of visitors to the garden, especially at the birdfeeder;  well look who turned up today!

On the roof of my workshop, a buzzard.

To think it was 2009 when I first saw (and wrote about, on this blog) a buzzard in this part of Derbyshire.

It is as tough as ever being top  of the food chain, the rooks were not pleased by our guest. There was a spat.

 

Rook Buzzard -1119

Having dismissed the rooks, the buzzard landed on the wall, and was joined by a second buzzard*.

Other guests included the beautiful thrush

Thrush-1104

and a timid robin.

* I think the time is approaching to upgrade from my  world weary Canon ESO400D camera, any suggestions?
