A very distant ROUGH-LEG but the only one on offer currently in UK

Despite a week or more of cold weather, the UK currently only has ONE wintering ROUGH-LEGGED BUZZARD - this individual that has been habitating Orfordness in Suffolk for the past month. It has taken to roosting regularly on the island's radar masts and can be easily seen from the footpath that runs parallel to the island about a mile and a half's walk north out of Orford....

Don't expect good views though - these are my shots taken of the bird at around 0.7 mile range
