Common Buzzard - first display

First signs of the changing seasons this week with Buzzards displaying. Typically circling and then closing their wings in a steep swooping dive before opening their wings, often with legs dangling, as this bird. The process often accompanied by the characteristic mewing calls.
A Chiffchaff calling in Bakewell will be one that has over wintered, benefitting from the mild winter, rather than a migrant at this time.
I've posted a short write up on a trip to Holland last weekend on my Wildlife Diaries Blog.
