Buzzards drawn to the plough– travelling back up to Sheffield today, a quick blog on the extraordinary repopulation of Buzzards in East Sussex. My brother-in-law Mike watched 13 buzzards feeding on earthworms and the like as he ploughed one field this week. We went to watch the next day and saw eight at least in a part of England where, when we were all growing up, there were no Buzzards ever seen. There were also flocks of Linnets– far from the path but I managed a photo as they flew. Once they had landed on the ploughed ground, to feed, they were too well camouflaged to see. Conditions: Light showers and sunny intervals, but much warmer than recently. Temperature: Max 15- Min 9c.
