Long-legged Buzzard - Judah

Whilst birding along the bottom of the escarpment at Judah a Long-legged Buzzard flew off the cliff and circled around. It was very early morning and the light was not great for photography but I managed a couple of photos that are shown below. Long-legged Buzzard is a breeding resident in the Eastern Province although it is thinly distributed in small numbers. Bird numbers appear to increase I winter so there is either an influx from elsewhere or birds move from their breeding areas to more favourable wintering sites. This bird is probably a breeding resident but the time of year could also suggest it was on passage.
