A few birds and a sunset

First harriers and a buzzard. I can find them but can't have the light as I'd like. Then a few small birds from today and a sunset from yesterday

The harriers and the buzzard are impressive, but my favorites are the white wagtail with the straw in its beak - and the trio of ducks landing. Quite a scene!

TFS - nice to view!

Thanks Phil. Yep, the wagtails are cute. Almost a bit curious, glad I have the silent shutter. The ducks were full speed fun but the eurasian penduline tit was the grand price since it's a rare one

adk38,

Always nice to see birds from another area - and I always love raptors in flight.  I also find it funny how 'buzzard' has such a different meaning over the pond - here, 'buzzard' refers to vultures, not raptors/hawks!

Also, beautiful sunset partial silhouettes.

Agree, I appreciate your pictures/posts with so much wildlife I will never see where I live

Buzzards and other raptors here will take an easy meal anytime. Roadkills and other dead animals if possible. Funny thing with this buzzard is that four days in a row it came pretty close to me. There were 8-10 in a small area but from pictures/feathers(lost) I can see it's the same. Mostly they just show me the back

Lovely set!

I had to look up Eurasian Penduline to see which one you were referring to. Looks like a racoon bird

I too loved the wagtail shot. I once saw one in Cornwall, cute birds!
