Buzzard

I'm a visiting Canadian birder, currently staying in Crediton.  I'm fairly certain I saw a Rough-legged Buzzard today over Two Moors Way, based on sheer size (it was massive at a distance, with huge 'eagle wings'), large dark carpals, although I guess I would have liked to have seen a more distinct trailing band on the tail (perhaps a juvenile?).  What do you think? Cheers,Matt http://snowyowllost.blogspot.co.uk/ 

(Eds: Dear Matt its a mistake many people make but the bird is a Common Buzzard, see this Id article: http://www.devonbirds.org/birdwatching/articles/common_buzzard   )
