I am continuing with my quest to get the perfect Buzzard photo and it's a struggle. The light is just so difficult to deal with but I have continued trying. Yesterday I set up my spotting scope which I connected to the lumix camera and positioned some bait quite a distance from the caravan. I had been surprised by the Buzzards behaviour this last few days. For example, they were absent from the site on Thursday and then when I returned on Friday morning I could see that they hadn't visited either. I set up some bait, positioned a gopro camera and then left. When I returned a few hours later I could see that they still hadn't been in to the bait and I wondered what was going on. Then, after much longer than I expected and in a rain shower, the juvenile came in to the bait and I filmed it through the digiscope set up. It wasn't perfect, I couldn't get all the bird in the viewfinder but It was an experiment that proved to me that it is another way to film the birds especially in low light.
I have continued trying to get more footage of the Polecat that came to take a rabbit carcass earlier in the week. I am hopeful that it will return and I will be able to get a better image. The camera fires off constantly and each shot shows wood mice which proves how common they are around the site.
