The last couple of daysI have been trying to photograph the Buzzards and it has continued to be frustrating. I have been baiting a post with frozen day old chicks (sounds nasty I agree but the chicks are the bye-product of the egg production industry. Using them means that I am making use of these unfortunate baby birds that would otherwise be used as pet food). When I arrive, all the chicks that I placed the day before have always gone. When I replace them I hope to catch whatever is taking them. A few times they have been taken from right under my nose, one second when I looked, the chick was there and then 30 seconds later, it had gone! Who was the culprit? Jays perhaps, but they are always so noisey, Little Owl.... I doubt it, even a Sparrowhawk perhaps? But yesterday I suddenly discovered the culprit, a Buzzard was there, just momentarily, and then gone, taking the chick with it. So today when I got there, the chicks had gone and I replaced them as normal. I was caught out yet again when a Buzzard caught me totally off guard, flew in and out as quick as it took me to write this sentence. I replaced the chick and began to wait again, I watched constantly for ages and ages but eventually I lost concentration, my gaze was averted and I missed it yet again. This time, the chick just disappeared when I wasn't looking. Watch this space because I am determined to get the shot!
