Raptor Rapture

There’s a little wood nearby that I walk the dogs in most days. Following a different path a few weeks ago, I discovered that buzzards had built a nest above the path. I think there’s at least two chicks in it, but I’ll have to wait until they are bigger before I’m able to get a better view of them. Meanwhile, in a nearby field, lapwings keep a beady eye out for the buzzards, and I’ve seen them dive-bombing the buzzards in an attempt to keep them away from their own nest. Nature is merciless.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
