Hello.
Recently been on holiday for two weeks in Andalucia. During our 2nd week we rented a place just outside the village of Pitres. on two days we had a buzzard over the casita that I identified as a Long-legged. When ever it showed it received attention from the local pair of Booted Eagles. The most striking feature was the pale gingery unbarred tail. The lower part of the belly was rusty brown, while the brest was pale with streaking, the under wing was generally paler than Common with a dark carpal patch.The overall size and proportions were not that different from the Common Buzzard. My previous experience of Long-legged have been in Morocco, Greece and Turkey. Any comments welcome.
