Fairfield Avenue birds today

I had a look for birds around the open "meadow" below Fairfield Avenue today - Chaffinches, Goldfinches, Robin, Blackbird, Great and Blue and Long-tailed Tits, all in 15 minutes. A good spot! Better still, a singing Nuthatch and - wow! a perched Buzzard that flew right in front of me  - George


  1. I'm glad to hear the buzzards are still around. I had regularly been seeing 2 from Wheelock Primary School, they had even been landing in the grounds but i haven't seen them at all since all the cold weather.


  2. If they are old enought to breed, the buzzards will probably be starting to concentrate on their likely nesting territory now, wherever in the valley that is.
