Lammergeier

Lammergeier. t

Took distant picture from Aish Tor. Bird flying very high beyond Deep Marsh and Spitchwick then flew towards Holne. Looked like it was carrying something.. Unable to attach picture. See on twitter.

Eds: Thanks, sorry but that picture is a Common Buzzard. The immature Lammergeier is longer winged, longer tailed, smaller headed, pale body with dark throat. It also shows some very individual bleaching to some of the inner primaries see  http://www.cbwps.org.uk/cbwpsword/sightings/  23rd May posting.
