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!!!

Although of course I know they used to scavenge in London in the Middle Ages.

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

When it gets too rampant have a look at the Pruning Climbing roses video from PZ
