ÈBUZZARD

Bird Watching (UK) - - 30 Years Of Birdwatching -

Now the com­mon­est and most wide­spread rap­tor in the UK, with as many as 80,000 pairs, the Buz­zard was, in 1986, still a bird mainly found in up­land ar­eas in western and north­ern Bri­tain. An in­ex­orable east­ward spread has made it a fa­mil­iar sight, even in sub­ur­ban ar­eas and on in­ten­sive farm­land. A de­crease in per­se­cu­tion may be one rea­son, as is a bur­geon­ing Rab­bit pop­u­la­tion – Buz­zards prey on the young an­i­mals.
