|Buzzard (Buteo Buteo) Wye Valley|
The Buzzard has made a remarkable comeback and is now the commonest bird of prey in the UK. Range across Europe and migrating to Africa.
Last night at about 10 p.m a Buzzard flew into an old Oak tree at the bottom of the garden.
I opened the window slowly and fired off three handheld shots on my Nikon D300s with a 300 F4 and 1.7 converter with SB800 flash. I was surprised to find that the auto focus actually worked in the darkness. Here is the result. The second shot was taken by the roadside near Gloucester.
