A quick break from my South African trip blogs to report that I have positively spotted my local Buzzard H3 again.
I’ve had times when I think I have seen her, but it’s been since October 2016 since I have managed to get her green ring in a photo.
I first spotted H3 in September 2013 but it took me until February 2015 to get close enough to her to read the numbers on the ring.
This is what I wrote on my blog February 2015
At the beginning of February I finally got a picture of the ring on the Buzzards leg that I had been trying to take for ages.
I emailed Euring with the details and I had some information back from BTO today.
H3 was ringed as a nestling on 22nd June 2013 at 16.30 at Hampton Estate, Seale in Surrey.
This means that my local Buzzard has travelled 72km from where it was born.
