Subject: Buzzards

The Common Buzzard has become a regular visitor to our farmland. However its prominence has really only been noticeable within the last 5 years. It's history has been a troubled one becoming extinct in Ireland by the early 20th century. Thankfully it is now common to see a Buzzard perching on a telegraph pole or hear the unmistakable mewing as it soars the thermals but unfortunately it still falls victim to illegal killings such as poisoning or shooting.

Illegal killings often stem from a misunderstanding of birds of prey. The buzzard does not hunt on the wing but sits waiting for an unsuspecting rabbit or rodent to appear, then he swoops on his quarry. He will also eat
carrion, amphibians and can be seen searching for beetles or earthworms in the open fields.
