      Afternoon everyone.  We had a visitor today to our two hives.  I attach a photo.  Does anyone have any experience of a buzzard eating bees. Ours were out flying today after the cold snap.  Any advice gratefully received. Thank you.

      Judy,

      The raptors, and other birds, have been having a hard time during the recent cold snap and the hard ground. The buzzards, kites and hawks have been geeting more desperate. I have seen them at close quarterd in our village and garden.

      Would be interesting to know if you have actually seen them taking bees.

      I have never seen that but if they are that hungry they might try anything.

      Great photo.  I think make him welcome – he’ll keep the woodpeckers and mice away  🙂

      Jacqui saw 11 kites in one tree just close to our place during the cold snap

      Thanks everyone.  I didn’t see him/her taking any bees, just sitting there.  He/she stayed quite awhile and good thought David to keep mice and woodpeckers away.
