Picture of a Buzzard circling high above a freshwater loch on an island, other islands in the distanceA view from somewhere on the Kilchoman Crags, looking out over Loch Gorm and out to Ben More on Mull in the distance. A Buzzard is circling above the loch, probably utilising the thermals on a summer day on Islay.

Picture of a Buzzard and a Crow flying close to the groundThis isn’t entirely what it looks like. While in this picture it looks like the Buzzard is chasing the Crow it was actually the other way around. I watched these two on a walk to Lossit Bay for probably at least 10 minutes, the Buzzard clearly had a very bad day.
