40º C (on the shadow) is quite normal here. Since May until October. You can get here in the sun more than 50.

It's good for them to be acquainted with the temperatures on the desert when they migrate.

BTW, near 0 in the winter.

The youngster is still on his platform I think. I saw a feeding action around 14:45h. The clip I recorded is very long and not such a good quality. My videocut program somehow do not like the format/codec.
May be I missed a flight, but I do not believe it.

good morning

8:00 loodus time
many small birds fly at an entrance to the rock. They have a white belly, I think.
Last night I saw them already, they will spend the night?
