Driving around Rhodes. 3.6.2014

Today we rented small car and we had nice day around the island. Many cool places like Monolithos, Prasonisi, Emponas and ancient Kaminos.
Weather was cloudy and rainy all day so not much light for the photographing or birds.. Our first stop was also best in whole day.
We went to check ancient Kaminos ruins and there i saw at least one dark morph Eleonora´s Falcon and one little bit challenging pale bird, which is maybe 2cy bird, but yeah.. Can´t be too careful! In other bad photo bird shows still some juvenile feathers in upper wing and back.
Eleonora´s Falcon 2cy bird, if i´m correct. 

This other Falcon is also interesting looking. What do you guys think?

Also huge flock of Alpine Swifts around the Kaminos and i counted about 60 birds in same flock.
There is not much birds around the island except Swallows, Swifts and Sardinian Warblers.
I had some Bee Eaters, two Buzzards, two Woodchat Shrikes, one Stone Chat, about 50 Yellow-legged Gulls and other common birds. Here is some photos around the island, mostly landscape pics.

Ancient Kaminos. 

One of the many Alpine Swifts.

Yellow-legged Gulls.


Somewhere in West coast.

West coast again.
I was surprised how easy the traffic was in the island, so after tomorrow i will take car for two other days and i will try again few places.
I might update next day after tomorrow, so i have some bird new to tell, it´s boring to show only landscapes and tourist photos :)
