Honey Buzzards and Seabirds

12th June 2011 Wykeham Forest Raptor watchpoint.
Three Honey Buzzards were on show almost continually from our arrival at
10.30 through till 12.30. Although distant for most of the time, they did show close
enough for "record" shots and several bouts of display flight was a pleasure to witness.

Also seen were: Goshawk, Common Buzzard, Crossbill and Turtle Dove, all from
the watchpoint, where around sixty other birders stood, as is the popularity of
Honey Buzzards in Britain.

worst Goshawk image ever!

After the morning Raptor watching, a visit to Bempton RSPB to photograph seabirds
before the weather worsened, was very enjoyable. A good number of Seabirds, particularly
Gannets and Kittiwakes pass close to the cliff-top, making flight shots, easy.
