Got into work today to find Bob Harris sent me these two stunning shots of a juvenile Buzzard Bob and his colleagues mist netted at Ness Gardens on Wirral yesterday morning.
Superb, but seriously hacked off, Buzzard.
"Should have come with us," Bob says referring to my jaunt to Blackpool to look at roosting Long Eared Owls. "Much more exciting."
Careful Bob, I might take you up on the offer one of these days...there can't be many Common Buzzards that have been trapped and ringed in our area - for which owners of expensive mist nets must, I assume, be profoundly grateful.
Presumably the net was wrecked?
Thanks for the pics Bob....
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies....
