Friday Islay Picture #125 - Buzzard

Friday Islay Picture in stencil

No, the Friday Islay Picture series isn't turning into a Friday Islay Bird Picture series. When I picked the picture for this evening I hadn't realised that last week's picture was of a group of Whooper Swans, only realised that when I checked last week's entry for the correct number. So here's another bird picture from Islay, a Buzzard:

Now Buzzards aren't really rare birds of prey any more, they can be spotted and heard in many places nowadays (at least in the UK, not sure about other countries). Nevertheless it was nice for me to get this close to it. It didn't stay long though, seconds after I took this picture it lifted off and disappeared.

As usual I'll post the larger version (larger as in more than twice as big) on the Islay Pictures photoblog on Saturday morning. Until then I wish you a good night and a great weekend!
