You did well Steve, I’ve yet to see a Scops owl in the daytime in a photographable position. I look forward to seeing the results when you get back.

Today at the Cap started early as usual but with strong easterly wind and rain.
After a good soaking, the weather cleared and we were treated to a constant passage of migrants.
Over 60 Balearic shearwaters were close inshore going east.
Also a good number of Scopoli’s shearwaters.
11 Hobby came through, a personal record.
5 Marsh Harrier
6 Honey Buzzard including a smart pale bird.
8 Migrant Common Kestrel
2 Eleonora’s Falcons
A few groups of Common Starling
610 Barn Swallows
4 Turtle dove
Sadly no Bee-eaters but I can’t really complain.
Mike

Apparently the passage of Falcons continued apace after I left the Cap de Ses Salines this morning.
As far as I can make out, the totals were:
135 Common Kestrel
15 Honey Buzzard
13 Marsh Harrier
16 Hobby
20 Eleonora’s
1 Osprey
1 Montagu’s Harrier
1 Red-footed Falcon

It was dark and raining so many of the birds have been identified in retrospect from photos.

I have checked passatge 5 on the approach road to the Cap de Ses Salines every time I have been to the Cap but as yet there is no sign of the Rock sparrows which have been present for the last few years, maybe they are a bit late but I hope they show up.
Obviously I will post if they are seen.

Walked up to the gates at Ternelles today. Good light and clear skies. Fairly close range views of a group of 3 griffon and 1 black vulture. Distant booted eagle and possible peregrine rounded off the walk which is becoming a regular Sunday morning for us

Did our regular Sunday morning walk up to the gates at Ternelles. Good light and clear sky made excellent viewing conditions. A group of 3 griffon and 1 black vulture seen at fairly close range. Possible peregrine, a booted eagle and a hoopoe made an enjoyable start to the day

A delightful morning at the Cap spent in the company of Steve and Kevin. There were also seven locals.
The day went well with good numbers of both Honey Buzzard and Marsh Harrier.
Common Kestrel went through and some Eleonora’s Falcons too.
We all left around midday very happy at the numbers seen.
As I left I said I hoped I wasn’t missing a grand day with more Honey Buzzard.
As I drove up the road, Juanjo had a group of eight but I left him to it.
Then they came. Groups of 22, 30, 11, 35, 14, 25, and too many more to list.
I am waiting for the totals but I think they will be mightily impressive for this Island.
I hope also some of the photographers will post some of the larger groups. It’s an amazing spectacle.
Mike

Hi Mike,
Sorry no pictures of the large groups. It was indeed very confusing as a lot of the Buzzards turned around as the southerly winds picked up a bit in the afternoon. I suspect a few of them could end up spending the night locally and depart tomorrow as the prediction is for northerlies. Shame I can't make it but the locals will be there at 7:30.
Attached a few of the birds of today. The red-footed falcon showed up after you left.
No matter how many photos of juvenile Honey Buzzards I have gathered, I never cease to be amazed at the beauty and variation of their plumage.
