Buzzard eating Frog at Stover CP

I need to thank the bird photographer who told me ( as a visitor to the area) that  he was waiting for the "Frog eating Buzzard" and. as we aited, it turned up. First it perchedd in a tree near a pool, listening for the frogs which could be heard calling,. After a few minutes it flew down to the side of the pool before it went to the side and pulled out three frogs in turn devouring them on the bank side. I was told this was a regular annual activity. Three images attached.
