Buzzard (Common Buzzard or Eurasian Buzzard) Buteo buteo

Twenty years ago Buzzards in the UK were only common in the north and west of the country and you would very rarely see one in Norfolk. Now they're a common bird across most of North Norfolk and beyond. Several captive birds were released in the 1990s so how much this is down to natural range expansion is anyone's guess.
