Long-legged buzzard nests in Spain

This is a long-legged buzzard video.

Translated from the Dutch bird researchers of SOVON:

The long-legged buzzard, Buteo rufinus, is breeding in southern Spain since 2009.

In 2009, there was one couple with two chicks. In 2010, there were at least two couples (one couple with three chicks) and three occupied territories. So, this African species is moving north.

More about this in Spanish daily El Pais.
