A buzzard seen moving SE at SE end of park at c1530. Told that I could "claim" Honey Buzzard, but didn't have enough time - or binos! - to check head size/shape, and wing shapes..!

Buzzards are certainly on the up. Honey's can be ID'd without seeing their small head. They are much more like Red Kites in the way they use their tails to manouvre, the wings are also held level.
