When out walking in the hills across the UK, it’s surprising how often you see birds of prey soaring in the skies above. But it’s not always easy to tell a buzzard from a red kite or a kestrel from a hobby. The BBC’s Springwatch Team has created a really helpful guide to help with these raptor dilemmas.
British birds of prey come in a range of different shapes, sizes and families, and telling them apart when all you have is a fleeting glimpse or a far-off silhouette in the sky can be difficult. This Springwatch guide looks at the similarities and differences in flying raptors, to give you more chance of a successful identification when you're out enjoying nature.
