    Too early here, have to wait for Orion to get up. Comet should be slightly above and to the right of his right foot, sky is clear but it’s already freezing. Geminids meteor shower due to peak tonight here too. Somehow don’t think l will be hanging around on the lawn (as we do for the summer meteors) getting frozen in the wee small hours!

    If you look at my profile, say "Hi!" But not in a creepy way.

    Worry not Olly, these two plus all their many friends are usually in my garden eating peanuts and seed.
    The small birds have been replaced in recent years by Crows, Magpies and Jackdaws, so different from my childhood when they lived on farm land and feared people. Haven’t seen a Thrush in years in this garden, have you got any?

    Those definitely look like what we call here a Buzzard Hawk. Which is just a fancy name for a buzzard, I think.

    To the bird table there are tits, coal, great, blue and sometimes a small flock of long-tailed; the robin, a nuthatch, and a small charm of goldfinches, barred woodpecker, wood pigeon, collared doves, and the local flock of jackdaws, starlings and sometimes a crow or seagull will swoop in, but they don't stop. blackbirds tend to stay on the grass underneath and go for what gets knocked off. I rarely see thrushes, once a grey heron landed on the aviary at the bottom of the garden. Ducks, geese and swans fly over from time to time. That seems quite a few when I list them all.

    Gumby, what you're describing are likely Black Buzzards. We have so many of 'em here that people are talking about taking them off the protected list, so they can be thinned out some.
    ( Personally, I think that's a bad idea, since rotting carcasses might possibly start piling up on the roads without 'em. )

    Those in the pic look like vultures to me, btw.

    Leave it be and it won't bother you.
    Screw with it, and it'll eat you alive.

    We see buzzards circling high sometimes, a good clue is when our owl goes crouched and studies the sky.
