  • Their Story

    The Common Buzzard is a medium sized bird of prey in the genus Buteo, which includes the broad-winged soaring hawks.

    In the U.K., the Common Buzzard suffered a significant reduction in available prey in the 1950’s when a myxomatosis epidemic killed off 99% of the rabbit population. Some additional significant threats include trapping, pesticides, and habitat loss. Common Buzzards are also highly vulnerable to the impacts of potential wind energy developments. In addition, lead poisoning caused by ingestion of lead ammunition imposes a threat to these birds.

    Despite all of the adversities these birds are facing the Common Buzzard population still remains in a stable condition.
