Ringed buzzard feeds on dead deer


This 18 July 2015 video is about a roe deer which had died in the sand dunes of Ameland island in the Netherlands.

As wildlife warden Robert Pater writes, at first this only attracted carrion crows feeding on carrion. No feral cats, no gulls, no rats.

After a week, a buzzard landed to feed on the dead deer. Not so unusual, these birds often feed on carrion. However, this buzzard had been ringed; near the Bergumermeer lake in Friesland province; where quite some bird are ringed.
