Well we had a superb week in Canillas De Aceituno was so hot SO HOT Sunday and Monday were just crazy heat didn't get to travel much to get a lot of birding done but was VERY lucky that we had a pair of resident Short-Toed Snake Eagles over our villa. We seen them most days a lot of the time very high but on one occasion I was lucky they came low enough for decent shots at 420mm
Also seen the bee eaters about 20 of them every evening around 7pm they would dart about feeding their faces, very tough to photograph so fast and in low light.
Sadly only seen very distant vultures, was an amazing sight at around 8pm every night in the distance there seemed to be a mass exodus South towards Malaga of all types of birds, eagles vultures and even a stork amongst them. I was told by a local that the vulture feeding station at Sedella is sadly no longer used as some utter scum had been throwing out poisoned meat.
Enroute home though I think it was a lesser Kestrel we seen sat on a pylon, I could only shoot a few shots and some into the sun as we were on a very narrow mountain road.https://www.flickr.com/photos/skirgeysphotos/28739298134/in/dateposted-public/https://www.flickr.com/photos/skirgeysphotos/28741451453/in/dateposted-public/https://www.flickr.com/photos/skirgeysphotos/28739296924/in/dateposted-public/https://www.flickr.com/photos/skirgeysphotos/29240887552/in/dateposted-public/https://www.flickr.com/photos/skirgeysphotos/29348461525/in/dateposted-public/https://www.flickr.com/photos/skirgeysphotos/28727460133/in/dateposted-public/
