I have wanted to see one of these beauties for ages and recently stumbled across this one in Isla Canela. Spain - Portugal
within seconds of sighting it was spooked by a magpie and I had only time for this shot.

I trailed them all week and despite many other pictures this was the only time I saw the plumage spread.
it may not have the quality I would have liked but I was happy non the less.
thanks for looking
