Misty Worcestershire (and an alert buzzard)

The views in this area, on cold, clear wintry mornings, have been really impressive over the past few weeks. Here are a few snaps.

Meanwhile, over the winter it has become quite normal to see buzzards perched on telegraph poles. Somehow or other I managed to get close enough to one around the Ankerdine Road area. They are usually difficult birds to photograph, despite their size and prominence, but being in a car probably helped on this occasion.

    • We have a few hawks as well. Sparrowhawks are common, goshawks have a similar bulk to buzzards but are much rarer (though can be seen in places like the Forest of Dean). But this is definitely a classic buzzard – we have lots of them around here.
