Woodlark

21 Apr

Today, in a fit of all like stuff and that, I gone all over the Farnham Heath.

I seen a few stuffs. They are in the photos as usual and they are here:

A stonechat sounding exactly like two stones being banged together apparently.

Unnecessarily blurry woodlark. Birds are often blurry as a natural defence against good photographs.

But by far the most impressive thing I seen was a giant-hairless-bum-buzzard.

Giant-hairless-bum-buzzards are so-called because they tow their nest around behind them everywhere they go, like a sort of sky-snail. The nest, which is huge (ranging precisely between several meters from side to side), is assembled out of twigs and moss and looks exactly like a shiny hairless pair of buttocks. The puckered entry hole is located in the nestular-crevice and can sometimes be seen with baby buzzards sticking their head out, like tiny, taloned turdlets.
