Nesting Buzzard Update.
Sunrise: 06.42 Sunset: 05.58
I took my 150 – 500 mm lens with me to Dark Wood today, and managed to get an image of the nest I have watched the buzzards repairing. https://thewildenmarshblog.com/2015/02/28/buzzards-building-a-nest//
The nest is deep within the wood, and I am only able to see it from one point on the ridge path. I would not have found the nest if I hadn’t seen the buzzards dropping twigs on it. In fact, I lost sight of it for a few days, before eventually finding it again. I have now taken the precaution of pegging the point on the path from where it is visible. When at the peg, I search for the tree with a woodpecker hole high up in its trunk, and look horizontally to the left until I find the pile of twigs. The nest is only just visible to the naked eye.
