I was driving along Cronton Rd when I noticed a very pale raptor perched in a dead tree. So with a handbrake turn ,I turned the van around with thoughts of osprey or rough legged buzzard flying around my head. I managed to get some photos of a very pale buzzard sp. but no feathers on the tarsi and no dark terminal tail band confirmed it as a common buzzard. A strikingly white underwing, white streaks on the coverts and mantle, and a partial white head make this a very beautiful bird.
