'Wasp-proof bird' video

Honey Buzzard raiding next

Honey Buzzard numbers are increasing in the UK, with an estimated 70 pairs nesting, mainly in East Midlands/Norfolk and Central/Southern England. They are summer visitors from Africa and their diet is predominantly the larvae of bees and wasps.

Whilst on holiday in France a couple of years ago, Martin Washford managed to film one raiding a nest on a road side verge.
