Birds at the Conservation Area

All species identification subject to confirmation - please let us know if you disagree with any of these.

The Conservation Area is not a very good area for photographing birds, but here are a couple we have seen recently. The buzzards are neighbours, but they often wheel overhead, making a lot of noise. Difficult to photograph properly against the sun.
