Raptor, East Sussex, UK. (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi all, this raptor floated high overhead today when I was out birding at Old Lodge on Ashdown Forest, East Sussex. Against a bright sky I only saw it in silhouette and assumed it was a Common Buzzard, but now I've got the image on my computer and lightened it I'm now unsure of the ID. My thinking is now more towards juvenile Honey Buzzard, but I don't have much experience of seeing them in the field so I'm not at all confident. Any help will be gratefully received. Thanks in advance.
