Raptor ID - North East Scotland.

The attached (very poor quality) images were taken on 1st November at RSPB Strathbeg Reserve, in North East Scotland.

They are of a raptor of some sort, can anyone shed some light ?

Sorry about the quality.

Agree the images are not the best, looks most likely to be a very pale form Common Buzzard and jizz would fit that too

Another good example of the wide variety of Common Buzzard
