After all these years I've finally seen a buzzard in Calderdale. Watched huge bird flying towards our house over Walsden rec from the direction of Bacup Road and thought it was a heron. Really big wings. It veered off over the garden centre towards the canal where it was joined by a smaller buzzard which must have been already in that area and they were mobbed by a jackdaw. By now I was looking out of the front of the house and lost track as they flew off towards Lanebottom.
And this really was my first sighting - I've lived here for 50 yrs! and began to think these were the figment of someone's imagination.
