If You Go Down To The Woods Today…

…You’re sure of a big surprise.*

Took the dogs for a walk in the woods this morning, and we were greeted by this newly-erected sign at the entrance.

It says: “beware of defensive buzzard”. There’s obviously a nest up in the trees somewhere, but I couldn’t spot it. At any rate, we were not buzzed by a buzzard.

The last time I saw a buzzard’s nest in these woods was eleven years ago.

Good to see them back.

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.

    At least yours are nesting in the trees. We had a couple check out our attic.
