Know your wing tips: A guide to the UK's birds of prey

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.

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.
