Honey Buzzard

Thank you

Given the lack of presence in the Norfolk area this year is any one aware of Honeys being active at Great Haldon Forest?

There have been none present at Haldon Forest since the late 90s. Now it's a big theme park for mountain-bikers and dog walkers (doggers). Used to have some great days up here, now only drive through on the way to other sites.

On a similar vein does anyone know if HB are still being seen from Acres Down in Hants this year yet?

Apparently they are, but not well from what I've heard - maybe the amount of Gos there now is having an impact?
