Rough-legged Buzzard - Beeley Moor and Slack Hill

These are Ken's photos of the juvenile Rough-legged Buzzard seen today by Mick Taylor over Harland Edge and by Ken at Slack Hill before it headed off in the Tansley direction.
The Rough-legged Buzzard has occasionally been seen in the Beeley area in the past, generally just as fly overs like this bird, in the early or late winter period. 
Birds have over-wintered in the northern Peak District in the upper Derwent Valley several times in the past.
