Hi

I'm not an expert on birds, but have this bird in the garden which no one seems to be able to identify. The pictures aren't too clear as the sun was setting and the 'point and shoot' camera isn't too great.
Any ideas?

Awesome thanks! Now that I've looked at what the male looks like, he was around at the beginning of the year. But haven't seen him in a few months.

I just about pranged my car 2 days ago, as a raptor swept over one of our busy roads.
Then the following day was the grand opening of our new Makro. It included an aeronautical display.
There was a beautiful raptor that landed on a roof and then in the tree across the road.  ::)
It was my own aeronautical display.  :mwink:
He did look a tad distressed which didn't surprise me.  :-[
Can't say what he was....could he have been a buzzard? straight tail with beige  and few brown "dots"?
The previous one was grey and big.
I would love to learn more  :biggrin:
They fascinate me!!!!
