Rough-legged Buzzard

This rare winter visitor breeds in high latitudes of subarctic and arctic, largely in low-lying, treeless, tundra areas, so, you can see how lucky we are to have one wander into our patch. Today, we had wonderful views of one, looking stunningly beautiful in the cold December light.
It is unusual in that it frequently hovers like a Kestrel, so I am going out again tomorrow in the hope of seeing that.
There may be better ways of spending one's time, but I don't know what they are.
Thank God.
