Number: 1
Breeding:
Remarks: matinale 6H45 - 10H30 The falcon was sitting in top of tree on other side of river offering a two coloured global pattern: throat, chest and underparts a rich chestnut rufous colour (I didn't really see the finely streaked with black), the upper parts, wings and tail dark slate grey. All dark upperside excludes female Red-footed. No contrast between chest and throat/face excludes pale morph Eleonora's. More or less same size as two nearby rollers that chased it away when I wasn't looking
