Folkes Wood - Raptors

I went to Folkes Wood the other day to see if i could get a better view of the three Common Buzzrds that are are sticking around and viewable from Tylers Common.

Sure enough the views are a great improvement of what seems to be a young bird and two adults. They hang around the dead trees to the left of the wood and can be seen easily via bins or even better with the scope. You can hear the birds calling as well but a little to far for me to record.

Again my raptor thoughts on this area seemed to be confirmed with views of Sparrowhawk, a very knackered looking Kestrel along with a fly over passing Hobby.
