Spectacular Air Show (Spring Migration 2011)

Kestrel - Photo taken by Chris Cachia Zammit
Just spent a great time bird watching. We spotted some lovely birds of prey. During the span of an hour lots of Marsh/Montagu's Harriers and Kestrels flew over our heads. Most of them were finding a place where to roost during the night. We met some keen birders carrying out observations and taking photos. We hope that all the birds we saw will make it to Sicily and none of them will be victims of poachers during the night.

Bird watching is an activity to be recommended as part of ecotourism in the Maltese Islands. Hundreds of bird species reside and migrate across Malta. Migration seasons are Autumn and Spring. 

Leave only footprints...take only photos :)
