Rough-legged Buzzard

Scaling Dam is currently host to a Rough-legged Buzzard. it was reported yesterday and seen by the Scaling recorder at about 11:00 today. Good views were had from the hide from whence it was seen to capture and begin to devour a rabbit.

Aye, Nick but Withens Clough was generally a bit short on ..... birds. Not unlike Withens Clough though I still need to see this thing and opportunity is a bit thin at the moment, pouring rain is unhelpful.
