Lanner Falcon

Falcon biarmicus

This large falcon is found throughout most of southern Africa in a variety of habitats (bar forests and most of Mozambique). Known for its ability to catch a variety of birds in flight, this monogamous species uses incredible speed to suprize its victims.

We first recorded this beautiful falcon in March 2011 outside the Memorial Gate of the Hluhluwe Game Reserve in KwaZulu Natal. In terms of best spots to watch this awesome bird of prey show off its hunting prowess, my favourite is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, especially at the waterholes between Nossop and Groot Kolk.
