Big Beefy Falcon, Northumberland Coast.

I'm thinking there's a lot of saker in this hedge-hopper. It's fed this morning by the looks of its full crop.

A hunting peregrine that turned up an hour later looked lightweight in comparison.

A month ago I posted my drawing of a short-toed eagle leaving the southern tip of Spain with the Moroccan coast in the distance.

Distant views of both birds from the footpath this morning. Take a scope.

There were only about 15 people watching when I was there some time after 11.00.

I think it's finished. I'll leave it overnight and see if I still think so in the morning.

Dragonfly ID, South-west Spain

I've only seen this species on one, maybe two occasions before, also at this location in Andalucia, but this is the first time I've seen one perched, so I could get photos.

Any ideas?
