We are right on the edge of the city - although we have woods and marshes just over the hill - I've seen red kites up in North Norfolk, and over at Nutcutlet's place on the edge of Cambridgeshire, and I've seen buzzards over arable land in North Suffolk and hobbies and marsh harriers around the Broads ........ but virtually over central Norwich!!!

I'm thinking they may be migrants returning to Europe for the winter?
