griffon vultures over cortijo al viento

Today was a day where paraglider pilots stay on the ground... we have had gusts well over 100kmh and were in danger of losing solar panels , chimneys and roof tiles
but the first time I have ever seen griffon vultures being blown backwards
a rarity here ! we had a flock of over 30 vultures pinned at the back of our house unable to gain height to cross the sierra estancias

They persevered for about 20mins until they gave up and flew further
west ,where we lost sight of them ,to try there

Trudy admiring a straggler!

and Lupa a bit excited ...waiting for them to land
