Another magnificent winter visitor to the fens, a Rough-legged Buzzard. This is not my photograph, and I was not the one to find the bird, but it's so magnificent that I want to share it with you. It is a proper buteo buzzard, but has some very individual habits, including hovering like a Kestrel. It will be gone in a week or so, but I console myself with the thought that we will then be a week or so closer to Spring.
