Ep 02 - Buzzards

In Your Nature

Friday, 14 July 2023 - 41 minutes

In this episode we chat about the Common Buzzard. We discuss the recolonisation of the species across Ireland after a number of major historic setbacks. Despite its recent continued advance, Buzzards are still illegally targeted and killed. We talk Buzzard ecology and try to straighten-out some of the common misconceptions about the species.

Species of the week is the Common (Ring-necked) Pheasant.
