Buzzard behaviour

Two Buzzards East of Brighouse today, one with very worn feathers and the other in very good condition, flying really low. The latter bird was repeatedly dropping a large twig from it's claws, then catching it before it hit the ground. Not seen this behaviour in Buzzards before ! - possibly a juv bird learning new aerial skills ?
Also two Little Owls together nearby, five Lapwings over and over fifty Swallows/Martins overhead.
No sight or sound of the usual Yellowhammers though.
