A magnificent specimen of Osprey flying over the lagoon of Es Grau
The osprey (Pandion haliaetus) — also called fish eagle,— is a diurnal, fish-eating bird of prey. It is a large raptor,
reaching more than 60 cm (24 in) in length and 180 cm (71 in) across
the wings. It is brown on the upperparts and predominantly greyish on
the head and underparts.
This is one of the most emblematic birds of Menorca and at the same time more scarce.
It is estimated that there are four couples that nest on the island and perhaps some exemplary unpaired.
