Commmon Buzzar (Buteo buteo)dead in a fence

In this photo we can see the remains of a Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo) that apparently got caught in a fence-ups, made ​​for the purpose of separating the pasture area of the forest, in order to promote better forest regeneration and have controlled livestock (sheep, cattle and horses).

The coin next to the skull gives us an idea of ​​the scale.
This raptor is abundant in all northern valleys, and is often seen in flight or inn above telephone poles or trees like  in this photo,looking for  mices and other small prey.
