Griffon Vulture over Cloud House Farm

Griffon vulture gliding low over the farm house this lunch time, lucky I had the camera at hand….. these things have to be seen to be believed, they’re huge up to 2.5m wingspan!

There are tens of thousands on the iberian peninsular and we have feeding stations in the local area where you can get real close up & intimate!
