It was an extremely hot today, the wind dropped off around the middle of the day and after that, we had some nice flocks of honey buzzards.

Looks like the migration is warming up.Once more, it was windy and the raptors arrived in the middle of the day. More information:

The first half of the day was slow with a strong wind blowing from north-east. Although the wind continued, the afternoon brought more action. A flock of white storks did not manage to cross the island and after a couple of hours, they decide to land on the island.
