E-mail from Michael Southall 29th November 2002

My brother told me of an unusual Buzzard sighting he had last week. He was driving towards Drakes Broughton from Pinvin when he saw a dead badger by the side of the road. As he approached it a Buzzard flew from the right hand side towards the badger. The Buzzard managed to avoid a collision with the car.

I came across two Buzzards together today, at Pepwell near Hartlebury, where at least one was feeding on a Wood Pigeon. The breast meat had gone and most of the internal organs. During last season's ploughing I was joined by a worm eating Buzzard on only one occasion. A pair successfully fledged two young this year, the first recorded breeding on Norchard farm.
