Harris Hawk in Puerto Banus (1 of 4)

Taking photos of seagulls when this beautiful bird swooped in. It's a Harris Hawk, Parabuteo unicinctus. Falconers like them because they're big and colourful.

(Thank you, Alistair Rae, for letting me know that bit!)


I guess it's proof that there's still oil money in Banus when one of the yacht crews take the falcon out for a bit of exercise round the port.


This shot makes a nice desktop wallpaper.
