Finally got some decent snowfall and it's been coming down all day so I headed out for a couple of hours to see what was lurking...

This Buzzard (Buteo buteo) was perched on an old gnarled tree with a cracking background and in falling snow but took to the air before I could frame up! I managed to grab a few flight shots ,the snow on the ground was like a huge reflector bouncing light back up to the underside of this lovely raptor.
