Once again, Dave Gosney came good. Theletra was reported as being a good site for Long-legged Buzzards. Sure enough, before I'd even stopped the car at the entrance to the gorge, one flew low over the road giving me fantastic views. Unfortunately, by the time I'd screeched to a halt and got out the car, it was some distance away. Never-the-less, I was pretty pleased with the shots I managed to take as it soared on the thermals for the next 15 minutes or so.
The Monty's Harrier was a surprise find near Akrotiri, taking flight from a bush as I rounded a bend in the dirt-track near the Aghios Nikolaos Monastery. More clouds of dust as I slammed on the brakes.
The posing Kestrel proved an easier imaging target. Why aren't Buzzards so confiding?
