I always find that it is rare that I go out specifically to photograph rapor species and then tend to be birds that I happen upon on my travels. Two recent such birds are:
A buzzard at the side of the road while working up in Scotland, near Oban.
and a kestrel whilst out searching for some Jays.
Speaking of Jays there are a lot visible at the moment as they are busy burying their winter caches of food. I have been trying to get some shots of them but still not have not got the shot I have in mind. Here are a few examples of the efforts to date.
