Buzzards

I was walking along one of the village farm tracks the other morning, when I saw a buzzard fly up from the ground and sit on a nearby fence post. As I got nearer, it flew up into a tree. I then heard the cries of another buzzard and looked up to see one soaring ever-closer.

Eventually, the soaring buzzard approached the tree and dived at the other buzzard, sending it from it's perch and it flew right in front of me. It then proceeded onto a group of trees further away. I've never been that close to a buzzard before, except when they fly in front of my car.

I took a couple of photos before my camera batteries ran out.
