Robinson R44 Raven II, G-ODAZ
While flying at 1,000 ft in VMC conditions, the helicopter struck a bird which the pilot identified as a buzzard. The pilot carried out a precautionary landing to inspect the helicopter, which suffered a broken windscreen transparency. After the inspection, the pilot continued the flight to his destination at White Waltham. He reported that he did not see the bird before it struck the helicopter so had been unable to take avoiding action.
