first few Honey-buzzards

hoped to see a few Honeys at Tarifa knowing we had missed the big passage of adults by quite a long period but we were pleasantly surprised by how many birds we saw; juveniles did outnumber adults but there were quite a few adult males still moving perhaps a reflection of th elate? breeding season in Scandinavia in 2017

Intermediate and dark juveniles

and a stunning pale juvenile complete with bandit mask

below adult presumably female from primary and secondary pattern

 another pale juvenile

 coming in over Tarifa town
