Back To Front

By Miles Herbert    
This young buzzard has been visiting our garden for several weeks now, to the point where the kids have named him "Buteo", and look for him every morning. It's nice to get some wild life in the middle of town, and as it was sunny this morning I thought I'd photograph him sat in our little town garden, as he hunts for insects.

What a super photo Miles and in the sunshine too so detailed and I love that bright eye . I just saw this movement in my garden . Low light starting to rain. It was the Sparrow hawk pulling a chaffinch to bits . I opened the door very slowly but he still flew off Sad(
