    Default how many raptors have you seen.

    Hi all, just to say i've seen 19 uk, 33 wp and many thousands on several trips to Israel. If you've never been to Israel i can't recomend it enough. Its worth it just for the raptors let alone the dessert birds,the migration and the possabilities of something rare or unusual turning up. ampelinus.

    I've seen 8 species of Raptor in the UK! All of them seen at least once without leaving the house.Latest 2 were Red Kite and Marsh Harrier last year.

    ... and here's me thinking 'Tickers' were an extinct species!

    18 in UK if we exclude owls, Western Palearctic I'm only up to 22 as I've not been birding on the mainland only Balearics and Canaries
