Life is hard for the Denton Buzzard







Excuse the poor quality of some the images as they were taken a great distance from the action but if you take the trouble to click and enlarge them you will see Denton’s resident buzzard being harried by a jay and attacked by a crow.

I was walking on the grazing pastures close to Hyde Hall in Denton today when I watched this drama unfold. I found it quite a surprise because I assumed the buzzard was the top feathered predator in that neck of the woods. I have observed the crows chasing away a heron, but I did not think a single crow would have the front to attack a larger bird like a buzzard - but as Bucks Fizz once said - the camera never lies.

Nothing looks good with a BNP banner on it, anyway I hear that Local right wing nut case Billington joined the Labour party this week.
