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.
No interactions present.
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!!

Great images, what a beautiful bird.
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.
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?
Thanks all for your kind comments.
