A Flora and Fauna of Symi

A personal guide to the wildlife of Symi and beyond

Common Buzzard

It's been a few days since I posted anything and the square at Stavros and staircase above it is still the same as in the photo on a previous post. We have moved to our winter quarters after doing some repair work, sorting the water supply out etc. Indeed we are told some able bodies will be coming to start work on the square this week. 

In a rare moment I caught this distant common buzzard catching a rising thermal before he disappeared over the mountain behind us. A first for me on Symi, they don't breed here so I guess it's passing through. The light collar around the chest gives it away.
