Some raptors from Lleida, Spain

I was in Spain working from 23 April until 2 May, based at Lleida.  The drylands around the city are great for birds and the city rubbish dump can be really good for raptors.  Here are some pics taken on 28 April close to the city (mainly at the landfill site).

 Many Griffon Vultures were present at the landfill site (I estimated a couple of hundred on the dump and passing overhead during the course of an afternoon visit).

 Many Black Kites were present on the dump.

And one or two Short-toed Eagles passing over
