Help please!! Bird identification

Hi all,

Can anyone help in identifying this bird which was seen in East Sussex?

Many thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

  • Hi Lottielouise, Lovely photos, it looks like a Common Buzzard to me. Their plumage can vary from quite dark to lighter plumage which yours seems to show.

  • Hi Hazel,

    Thanks so much for your prompt reply, it’s very much appreciated!

    I took the still photos from the video I had taken of the bird, which I couldn’t upload here, hence why the photos are a little blurry.

    Such amazing birds and a real treat to see so close : )

    Thank you once again for your help Hazel and enjoy your weekend.
  • Hi Lottielouise, if you wanted to upload vid you need to do it via a link to a Youtube url, and as Hazel says, a buzzard... nicely captured :o)
  • Hi PimperneBloke, thanks so much for your message and for the useful tip, I appreciate it : ) First time to the Forum, great to connect with the community!
