More Steppe Buzzards near Tabuk – Bird records by Viv Wilson

As mentioned in a previous post Steppe Buzzard Buteo Buteo vulpinus is an uncommon passage migrant and winter visitor that pass in March and April and again in September and October, merging with the occasional and sparse winter visitors which may appear in any or all months between the spring and autumn movements. Viv has been taking a number of photos of this species recently with birds still present until at least 9 May, which is quite late for the species. The northwest where Viv lives is a very good site for the species that tend to pass on the western side of the Kingdom rather than the Eastern side where I live. Viv has kindly allowed me to use some of his photos of the species on my website which are shown below.
