Spring sunshine brings out a Queen Bumblebee and an interesting Buzzard sighting…

Yesterday I saw my first Queen Bumblebee at Caldene Fields looking for a nest site…

I also received an email from Phil who saw a single Buzzard 11.49am flying South East over Bailiffe Bridge towards Chain Bar Roundabout being buzzed by corvid.

This is quite interesting as the Common Buzzard bred for the first time last year in south Bradford and research suggests radio-tracked individuals do move away from their nest in the first autumn, and then come back to the nest in the following spring, seemingly to check for potential breeding sites.

Is this a young last years bird?
