February 3rd 2012.

 A first winter Rough Legged Buzzard just outside Hakodate 2 years ago today. There was a big influx of the species that winter, I saw them in 4 different locations but none were as tame as this individual.

And of course I've never seen any since..........

Thanks for clicking this link.......


  1. Love the hovering shot. They are brilliant hovers aren't they? We had an influx 2007/08 winter in Niigata and I haven't seen any since. My shots weren't as nice as these. I'd love to see them again.

  2. Hi Russell, there is/was one in the same place as the Gyrfalcon but I haven't seen it yet.......

  3. Very good shots Stuart! I have no chance of seeing them at all, so it's nice to see them here.

    1. Guess they don't make it as far south as you..............but aside from 2 years ago I've never seen them either.
