Eye to eye with Buzzard!!
After a lot of searching through the woodlands of Ireland I finally managed to get close to one of our most magnificent birds, The Buzzard. This is one of a breeding pair which were located down in South Kilkenny this summer.
Although I was there in the location for quite a while there was only one photo opportunity that came my way and these are the images as a result.
The buzzard is fighting against the odds in this country and comes in for a lot of misguided headlines.
More often than not you will hear their loud shrill as they soar very high in the sky.
