Magical Moment

I used to see lots of Buzzards in Eagleton.  Or perhaps, to be more accurate, I used to see Buzzards very frequently – it may well have been the same or the same few birds which just lived or wandered around here a lot.  Last summer and this summer I’ve hardly seen a Buzzard at all.  So I was surprised this afternoon when I looked out and down by the shore was one hovering over something at the bottom of the croft.  Fortunately the camera was within it’s prescribed three feet of my right hand and I managed a couple of shots before it dived into the vegetation never, despite a long and patient wait, to be seen again.

  1. Oh well done, Graham! You won't need to buy any more paintings... This proves you can make your own! :)

  2. You can have your fill of buzzards when you come to Maumulon. We hear their keening and look up to see them circling. We don't often see them low to the ground though.

  3. Oh the second photo does look like a painting, a beautiful one, too.
