I wonder if the Young one's are lighter as I have a family of five out the back of my house and three are much lighter than the other's.
Just a thought.

I don't think there is

I don't think there is anything exceptional about the colouring of this bird. Buzzard is very variable. There was a post the other day of one which was almost as white as an Osprey - extreme, but it is not unusual to see pale birds.
