To close to see


We just arrived in Camardi and wanted to check area for new species. We checked around for some minutes the wheatears without to notice a Saker Falcon just 60m away from us eating a Souslik.. At the moment we realized what there is we were already to late. Before anyone of us could make any photo of this beautiful 'chocolate' brown falcon clear and near sitting on a stone he started to fly away! Nobody got any good photos only some flightshots.

All of us are really sad about getting no good photo but we all had a good view of this falcon which will stay forever in our mind!
