Charmouth - Buzzard eating worms - Mon 20th Feb 2017
Seadown Caravan Park located just inland from the beach and alongside the River Char is closed for the winter break. The grassy area alongside the reed bed is very quiet and undisturbed during the winter. At 07:45 this morning I was amazed to see this Buzzard strutting around feeding on the ground about 100 metres from a busy footpath. I assume it was eating invertebrates, maybe worms. It was successful but at distance I could not see the food items. I watched it for 5 or 6 minutes before it flew off. Here's a shaky video which is not great quality I know but I think merits posting because of the interesting behaviour.
