on the lane to Latchley

I thought for a moment that this was an osprey returning from the Middle East for the summer. It looked very pale for a buzzard, and unlike most buzzards did not fly off when it realised we were taking a close interest in it. However, on close inspection it lacks the white forehead of the osprey, and it must be a large fluffy, probably young, buzzard warming itself in the early morning sun.
