Burpham (25/12/2011)

After Christmas dinner with Dad we drove to Burpham in order to find the Rough-legged Buzzard.  After seeing a few Buzzards, a couple of Red Kites and quite a few Grey Partridges on the way to The Burgh, I picked up a raptor being pestered by crows.  It look distinctly pale and white sitting on a feeder bin but I was wary and eventually it took flight where the distinctive tail pattern of a Rough-legged Buzzard.  Couldn't get my Dad on it in flight as it was very distant but he was happy with the perched views.  No Hen Harriers were seen which was disappointing.
