Bird News Friday 27th July

A Honey Buzzard (female pale-type with extensively white underparts), was seen at Banagher Glen near Dungiven, Co. Derry, it seemed to be on the move, watched for 15 minutes around 2pm drifting, flapping and  gliding  east / southeast along the full length of the glen. It was eventually lost in view over forestry beyond the reservoir. Briefly interacting with common buzzards and ravens (David Steele)
