Common Buzzard - Musvåk - Buteo buteo
Ormvråk - Musvåge - Hiirihaukka - Buizerd - Mäusebussard - Buse variable - Busardo Ratonero

This species is something of a rarity on my local patch in Øygarden, near Bergen, Norway where it is not even recorded annually. However, it is one of the commonest raptors in the rest of Europe and even in the east of of Norway.

Common Buzzard is the commonest bird of prey in Crete and is certainly among the top three in North Northumberland too.
