The final part of my birding extravaganza on Mallorca involved twitching some reported Red-footed Falcons that were hanging out with a couple of Lesser Kestrels in the central area of the island.
Together with Vanesa Palacios I joined forces with English holidaying birder Chris Martin, to eek out these scarce migrant falcons.
As we had met in the afternoon our search started shortly after so we set about scouring the countryside looking for where the birds might be as we had no pinpoint accurate gen. In between watching Thekla Lark, Red-legged Partridge, European Hare and listening to singing Common Quail we finally found our quarry. At least two Red-foots amongst perhaps four Lesser Kestrel on some wires.
We marveled at these birds as the evening Mallorcan light dimmed. A great way end a great trip.
