6. At least that number. Probably a lot more, given the intensity of singing.  
06/05/16BuzzardMartin Down1R T Toft
Posting this only because it was a very pale bird and flying with a flap/glide motion. Breast off-white and completely unmarked. Appeared to have a couple of dark, vertical stripes on underwing. Grey-brown above. Couldn't see much else because of the bright light. It was probably a Common Buzzard, but worth looking out for in case it wasn't!!!.
