Golden Eagle

This morning at 11.00 on the way back from work, I met a golden eagle.
Before I had seen at least three different specimens of Short-toed Snake-eagle not far away.
The eagle is a subaldult and was mobbed by a common buzzard while a  Short-toed Snake-eagle was looking the scene from above.
A scene of wild life pretty rare to see for an anthropized territory like ours.

Birding morning

At six o’clock at the harbour there were two Slender-billed gull and an oystercatcher, two birds pretty rare for my zone.
At ten i went to the hill to wait for raptor migration.
At the beginning a little flock of seven Red-footed falcon.
At 11.30 a.m. i saw a dramatic Honey buzzard migration with al least one hundred birds flyng over my head direction north (even common buzzard and marsh harrier)
What a good day today.

P.S. Evening update: OSPREY!!!
