“Buzz” the local Buzzard spotted at Garador

A beautiful Common Buzzard has been frequently sighted at Yeovil-based garage door manufacturer, Garador. 

“Buzz” as he’s sometimes called by the staff in the factory and offices, has been sighted on multiple occasions over the past few months.

With a large wingspan of over one metre in length he most certainly grabs your attention when you see him. He’s such an extraordinarily beautiful creature and always makes an impression when he’s gliding through the air or perched on a tree.

There are all sorts of insects and birds in the grasslands, fields and forests surrounding Garador, so there is likely a good source of food for the bird of prey. Plus there are lots of trees which are ideal as a lookout point.

According to Wikipedia, the common buzzard (Buteo buteo) is a medium-to-large bird of prey which has a large range. A member of the genus Buteo, it is a member of the family Accipitridae. 

The species lives in most of Europe and extends its breeding range across much of the Palearctic as far as the northwestern China (Tien Shan), far western Siberia and northwestern Mongolia.
Garador has been manufacturing garage doors in Yeovil since 1948. You can view their full range of garage doors online at
