Mobbing corvids led me to a buzzard

this buzzard (correct me if I’m wrong!) was nonchalantly sat on a chimney while corvids mobbed it. the buzzard let out a tiny squeak at the other birds. I was a bit worried that the buzzard was out of sorts - but it was gone after 20 mins.

  been a while since I’ve seen any kind of bird of prey perched in the street - they’re usually in the sky! 

  • When Corvids mob Buzzards and other Raptors it is a great help to Raptor watchers,they often then see birds they otherwise may have missed. We had a similar experience this afternoon but the Buzzard was mobbed by Swallows or Martins,it was hard to tell which at the distance we were watching
