Buzzard plumages. Your sightings needed!

Cornish birders can actively contribute to an international research project at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology into geographical differences in the distribution of various Common buzzard plumage types across Europe and whether plumage colour affects the buzzard’s survival and reproductive success. There are currently just six records from Devon, one from Dorset and none from Cornwall.
