Haughton Green/Reddish Vale Buzzards
The Tameside Advertiser regarding the buzzards to be found in the area.
I have never professed to be a professional bird spotter or anything of the sort but I fear the correspondents who are writing in to Sean Wood are mistaken if they believe the buzzards they see are migrants from Cheshire. These buzzards are resident and not migrants, in fact I know where all three live as I feed and film them often.
These birds know me well, the one in the clip below is a youngster and his/her love of easy meals makes it a bit bolder than its parents. If you ever fancy seeing these buzzards to see what all the hype is about get yourself onto the horse fields in between Stockport Road and the M60. If the weather is fine you will almost certainly see one and they are a sight to behold.
