Bonelli's Eagle

Here's a very poor photo of a large eagle taken after the sun went down over Panormitis. We watched this large bird of prey with a six foot wingspan for about twenty minutes as it hunted over the hills. Justine  got a good view of it in the bins and it's a 2nd year immature Bonelli's eagle in full moult, probably blown in from nearby Bosburun Peninsular on Turkey.
