North Dorset Nature – Buzzards At Ashmore Woods

Nick Crump joins Tom Perrett in Ashmore Woods, an ideal place to spot raptors.

You’ll hear the men discuss the common buzzard. Buzzards skilfully control the thermals when they fly. You will learn about their colour variations and how to recognise the buzzard by their wing and tail shape.

They have far-reaching hunting territories which they share with other raptors but are aggressively territorial near their nest. You’ll hear a recording of an adult buzzard with their young crying out for food.
