Hi

Forgot to say when I went out looking up at the Sun not encouraged to see 10 buzzards circling up a thermal between me and the Sun! A buzz of buzzards?

And the day before the clouds were travelling with the prevailing westerlies but a cloud bank kept being replenished in front of the sun as the westerly wind encountered the pressure wave over the north-south ridge I am one.

Its not just palm trees are an issue!

Cheers. Andrew.

I see buzzards often here too! For a few in other places that might not know what a " buzzard " is, they might know them by another name. Vultures!

Hi James,

We do not have vultures in the UK.

Small raptors.

Cheers. Andrew.

I think in the USA you call buzzards, hawks? I think the Red tailed hawk is the most similar.
