Budgie junior's flying lesson

Budgie junior's flying lesson

The buzzards had their youngster up for a soaring lesson today and they started off low down right over us in the garden. You can hear junior quite a distance away as he screams constantly. The parents were carefully escorting him. I had to fling down my gardening tools and grab my camera and charge through the house to capture him. I can never tell which side of the house they are going to appear so I don't get any rest. One day I will get the perfect shot!

Thank you very much Jimmy - it is a treat to have them so close and each year they seem to trust us a bit more. Viv

It is lovely to be able to watch them living their life and knowing that they are free to do whatever they like.....even if it is not giving you an easy day they will relent and give you the shot you dream about.....nice action here Viv, and calling as will have to garden with the camera around your neck.....SmileAlan
