The reason for the panicking wigeon in the previous shot was this low-flying common buzzard. Usually buzzards soar high, but this one was doing a very good impersonation of a marsh harrier's flight. I was on Burton Marsh at the boundary of the Burton Mere Wetlands reserve and so had a clear view. I wonder how many in the reserve's hides some distance away thought it was a harrier.
