Am I seeing things ? up on the mountain this morning, my usaul juant with the hounds, beautiful fresh morning, wind in the north west 4/5 gusting 6, up at 900meters and there it was an eagle hanging in the wind about 150mtrs from me gliding and half circling, medium in size short head camel colour head and shoulders and distinc pale patches at the base of inner primaries (had my binos with me) viewed the birds for several minutes then it was mobbed by what looked like swallows and it took off towards Teruel. checking my reference book the only eagle that came close is the Lesser Spotted, eastern mediterainian and the Balkans are we seeing a changing in bird movement or am I really seeing things stone cold sober?
