Description:

These birds were soaring over the cliffs at Ceiber Bay, at one point they were so close I had to reduce the camera zoom, unheard of.

Wonderful photos!

I just love these birds which I watch daily from our garden 'playing'. When the wings catch the morning or evening light they are breathtaking. I try again and again to get photos but even when close one minute they are soaring high the next. Which is why I am full of admiration for your lovely images!!

Superb photos

Superb photos and such lovely birds! I wish there were any really close to my home so that I could watch them soar and circle, but I will just have to make do with common buzzards.

Buzzards are wonderful too!

We also have a pair of buzzards in the urban wood up the road so we can watch them aswell. This is in Reading!! I can't believe our luck but both nest in this tiny bit of ancient woodland surviving between housing estates next to the M4. Both birds of prey are magnificent aren't they?
