Welcome to the Buteo Wildlife blog, a record of some of the wildlife that we have been seeing and occasional identification articles that will hopefully be useful for those trying to learn about wildlife.

If you enjoy reading this blog, join us on one of our tours - days and weekends looking for wildlife. Visit our website for details: www.buteowildlife.co.uk
Note that tours with clients may not always feature prominently on this blog because we are unlikely to have time for photography when out with clients - and walls of text don't tend to make the most interesting posts. If there is time for a few snatched photos they may not always be of the highest quality - but we'll use them anyway!

To try and keep posts in chronological order they may sometimes be given earlier dates/times than when they are actually posted. Apologies, for this - it's not meant to mislead anyone (and we will try to avoid this happening too often).

Birds in snow (21st January 2013).

A cold spell that had brought snow and freezing conditions was not good for the birds, but it did provide some good opportunities for photography.

One of the Bitterns at Seventy Acres Lake in the Lee Valley Country Park, came right out into the open while searching for open water in which to fish, and nearby Redwings and Fieldfares showed little concern for my presence, near to where they were feeding on exposed leaf litter near the car park (the snow had barely managed to cover the ground under the trees here).
