The internet here is every which way at the moment. The sun is out and it is scorchio. A couple of weeks ago I could hear a pair of young Buzzard calling for food. a few days afterwards I found one on the ground flapping about so picked it up and put it on a branch. When I got back with a sensible lens it had gone. Yesterday I saw two young Buzzard with a parent. They can fly properly now so I will try and get some pictures. I have dug out a 400mm lens and have heard them but not seen them since. The silly thing is I know to within yards on a horizontal plane where the nest is but can’t find it. I would expect bits of dead animals and a big pile of poo but this birding is harder than you think. It’s not as if I’m hunting for a Goldcrest or a Wren.
Here is Catch up.
This one has me baffled it looks a bit like a female Yellow Dung Fly but it is too yellow. I have searched and searched but have no idea what it is.
I know what this is. I don’t but it is called set aside. It gets a grant here. It does not appear to get any insects.

Have a great weekend.
