I've asked daughter ... I think probably buzzard, if not Red Kite ... I know buzzards fly high, but Red kites circle ..

Hello, rather chilly here too, and it's getting colder.

Just picked up a new watering can from Screwfix, click and collect. The old galvanised one is leaking. I don't like looking at plastic outdoor watering cans and since we don't have a shed there's nowhere to hide it! We'll see how long this one lasts! It also has a removeable rose, unlike the old one.

Enjoy your hot cross buns! I have some in the freezer I'm going to get out :thumbsup :yum

I really rate Aldi oats.

I think it might be a red kite? Bad photo, enlarged, and exposure increased in LR:

Daughter has surprised me but saying probably a Sparrowhawk as it is their mating season and they do make that noise then ...

I think Red Kites have pronounced forked tails?

that's not a red kite... red kite has a very distinctive forked tail and the plumage is much more red than that. I think that is a buzzard ..

I have sent daughter a shot of your photo, but she can't get whatsApp while she's at work ..

oh ok. I thought it might be the right markings, but it's hard to tell when the photo is so poor. I shall eagerly await her verdict :)

It was doing very wide circuits.

Sorry Suffs. Poor multi-tasking again...
