Crete photo

I have been to Crete for a week & decided to upgrade from Mavic mini to Mini Pro 3 just before. Glad I did but had a close call while out there.

I was up early one morning to get some pictures of Agii Theodori (I think this is correct name) & I managed to get a shot but then on the controller screen I seen a big bird appear. I got out of there fast. I wished I was screen recording at the time to capture it as I was curious to know what it was.

After I returned home & started editing the pictures I noticed one had a large bird heading straight towards my mini. Could have been 1st & last holiday for mini 3, luckily it is still here but assume it wouldn’t have stood a chance with a bird this big. Anyway here is the picture, can anyone spot the bird? Bonus points for type of bird.

Possibly an Eleonora’s Falcon, whatever not the best thing to be eyeing you up
