Rough Legged Buzzard (early x mas present)

Went to look for RL Buzzard tO day,just as I was aproaching the area where it had been seen ,I saw a bird being chased across the moor to my right by a Kestrel,it flew right infront of the car .A Buzzard to be sure and as it banked the white rump came into view.Very nice indeed//////////Watched in flight for the next half an hour or so until the cold got the better of me.Many thanks to the chap who found it and to aLL THE MOBILE MESSAGES FROM NICK AND Dave///Cheers Im gonna have a beer or two tonight/
