I have been studying Honey buzzards for 30 years, publishing several landmark papers on the breeding of this secretive and often misunderstood species in the U.K.
This study has looked at a range of breeding behaviour , following breeding pairs at the nest, from first arrival to fledging. Remote cameras have afforded intimate insights into the behaviour at the nest as well as providing details of prey species. Colour ringing as also shed considerable light on movements, pairings and longevity.
Since the start of the study a light has been shed into some of the previously dark corners of Honey buzzard breeding biology.
