Sunday 8th November
I happened upon this lovely on the road to Funton Creek first thing this morning. Initially I thought I'd stumpled upon a Rough-legged Buzzard, but it appeared quite slight and when it took off I noticed the abscence of a white tail band. The consensus is a juvenile pale-morph Common Buzzard - still a lovely bird to see netherless. On the creek I managed 150+ Avocet and onto Sheppey where I had 2 superb ringtail Hen Harriers (Swale NNR and Harty marshes), 2x Peregrine and 1x Merlin - classic Sheppey!
