I have seen buzzards over the garden a few times over the years but it's been getting more frequent recently.
Yesterday I heard one calling quite clearly and was surprised at how low it was as it circled above my house.
I live quite close to the town centre so it's not a bird I expect to see often from the garden... never mind this close.
I had plenty of time to grab a few images then just watch it glide around through my binoculars.
A beautiful bird to see up close.

A quick update about Mum... she came home today after spending five days in hospital without having her operation although this was the closest to having it done so far as she did make the operating theatre before the anethetist decided her potassium levels were too high to proceed.
