Finally managed to get some photos of the Buzzards over the garden with three seen together, the above two and the single below, and heard mewing. Now becoming a regular occurrence over the garden. Shame I couldn't get all three in the same image.

Common Buzzard, Hadleigh Downs, Essex 9th March 2014
A remarkable count of 7 birds was made in around an hour early afternoon over the Downs with this bird seemingling taking off from a perch somewhere above us on the hill thus presenting itself as the closest of the bunch.
Marsh Harrier, male, Wat Tyler Country Park, Essex 29th March 2014
A rather smart male Marsh Harrier spent some time quartering the reed beds to the north of the scrape until it eventually done a fly by past the hide allowing these reasonable shots to be obtained.
