Mallorca Raptors

The best Raptor was without doubt this Eleonoras Falcon, according to a couple of expert birders it was a Peregrine as it was to early for then Eleonoras, but I am having none of it. Most definately an Eleonoras. Check out this link for some interesting information Migratory route of Eleonora's falcon revealed for first time | e! Science News: "- Sent using Google Toolbar"
We also had an Osprey fly over, Peregrine Falcon and Kestrel. A trip to the mountains proved fruitless for Black Vulture etc.
