The Common Buzzard (Buteo Buteo) is one of the most visible of Britains raptors. This is mainly due to a strong national population and it’s large size. On any cross country journey on a clear day you are likely to see them sitting idly on a fence post waiting for a meal to pass by, or soaring lazily in groups of two or more in the afternoon thermals.
