Buzzard worrying

Not much news from Alveley (Rhossili) this week; just our resident Buzzard being continually mobbed by the local Carrion Crows. These pics were on two separate days, and they rarely left the Buzzard alone to get on with its regular mousing and worming. The male crow is nearly the size of a Raven, with a beak to match.
They are surprisingly aggressive so far out of the breeding season. Buzzards soon learn to live their whole lives under continuous mobbing from one source or another.
