Rough justice

These fantastic images of a 1st winter (fem) Rough-legged Buzzard were taken by Nick Dawtry over Buckton village pond on Sunday 17th (1345hrs). With several arriving over the weekend including four birds at Spurn and one which went over Flamborough it was no surprise that one headed over Buckton, just great that it was photographed so well!
A bit of rough justice having spent the week on site but not as bad as what happened to one observer the day before, I called the Flamborough boys over to help locate a large pipit, which turned out to be one of the Richard's that had been present during the week. One observer who had been seawatching managed to damage their car getting to the pipit field, which then put them out of action for the afternoon, just when a Fea's Petrel sailed past the head, oops!
