Eleonora Falcons at Episkopi Cliffs






I took these images of Eleonora falcons on the cliffs at Episkopi which is an occupied British Army Garrison near Limassol Cyprus. It is also the place to spot Griffon Vultures and although I did not see one on this visit I did in March this tear. Eleonora Falcons breed in Cyprus before migrating and they are plentiful in this area. They are very fast elegant flyers and these images were not easy to capture. In fact it took two visits before I was happy to have a few in focus.
