Gulls in the wind

The wind has been very strong and gusting for the past few days but it doesn’t seem to affect the gulls who maintain their graceful flight as they fly in and out, gliding, swooping and diving with apparent ease. They even maintain great decorum when they come in to land, although it does look like a lot of extra effort is sometimes required.

Birds of Prey at the Falconry and Conservation Centre

On top of Monte Calamorro in Benalmádena is a Falconry and Conservation Centre with a variety of birds of prey. While I was waiting for their daily exhibition/display to start, an Osprey decided to drift in and made several dives onto the mountainside for prey. The Osprey was a visitor and not part of the centre.
