Eleonora's falcon on Samos

I watched a flock of around 12 large falcons hunting for birds and insects on a coastal hillside in SE Samos, Greece recently. Some 50 pairs breed on nearby islets. Some were distinctive dark phase, some more hobby-like, but I think the plumage patterns all fit Eleonora's.
