Red-footed Falcon

What a good way to finish my 4 day weekend birding trip!!!! This 2cy female Red-footed Falcon Falco vespertinus was today at Lagoa dos Patos ricefields near Beja, and feeding along with several resident Lesser Kestrels and Kestrels from the area.

Although, their spring migration routes are more westerly, the majority of portuguese records were made in the autumn.
