Life at Casa Tyr

Raptors

Article text
We often see raptors from our terrace at Casa Tyr, but this week, we were in for a treat. Instead of seeing the birds in ones and twos (or entire families, as with our kestrel family of the summer), this time we saw what looked like 20 large birds.

They were flying directly over our terrace, swooping and diving, and just having fun. Our twitcher neighbour Terry says they are Griffon vultures. They usually live in the Ronda area, but as it was such a nice day, they were obviously out for a day trip!
