Tues 16th April

Late afternoon today virtually over Reddish works yard, a noisy mob of Lesser Black-backed Gulls was flying around and as I looked up - it looked like a pale morph Common Buzzard just drifting out of sight over one of the nearby factories.
They seemed to be making a lot of noise for just a Buzzard.





A local Facebook group have posted in the last couple of days in relation to a Red-tailed Hawk that hasnt returned to its owner in the Dane Bank and Reddish area. Apparently has now been out since last weekend.
It has been spotted a few times, one of which was on Thornley Lane North, few hundred yards from Station Rd where I work .. Im wondering if this could be the bird I saw, maybe?
