That was about as much as we had this year, so Titch decided to go for a bath
As only a bird can he really enjoyed his bath today,
I took a fair number stood outside watching him from about 5yards away
Need to give myself a good ducking and maybe attract a female
OK I'll get out now
Oooh that was a little deep
I had to drag him out honestly - you know what these boys are like, takes an age to get them in then they won't leave the water:-)
Nice bit of sunshine to dry off the feathers
Bit of preening
Well no female robin but this little BT will do
Now I need feeding after all that exercise
Not too many I hope,
but he is lovely:-)
Wow Gaynor, what a special visitor to have in your garden, it's a very pale looking buzzard but beautiful to see. We've had buzzards in our garden three times that I can remember but ours are darker than this pale variation. Wonderful photos of it.
I wish you Buzzards with your breakfast Gaynor!
Thanks Wendy, Alan and TJ, I was hoping for a return visit tonight but sadly no, mind you it is very windy and maybe he/she wouldn't have been able to get in safely. I remain hopeful for more photos another time.
Amazing. Not often you get a Buzzard in your back yard. Great set of shots, Gaynor.
Lovely Buzzard shots Gaynor it certainly has a young look about it.
No doubt it will be back if it thinks it has found a food source.
Absolutely wonderful pics Gaynor, that Buzzard is so pretty!
I'm sure I replied once, well never mind, thanks all and yes it was a surprise Hazy, never had a buzzard in the garden though have seen plenty in local fields. At first I thought it was a female Sprawk as it was so big, then when I noticed all the white I did wonder if it was one of last year's brood of Buzzard.
Gorgeous bird! I hope he comes back.
What lovely photos of your visitor Gaynor, hope he returns if it is rats!
