The Cape Griffon nests on cliff faces like these at Collywobbles, South Africa

A breeding colony such as the one above is a wonderful sight to see. The birds soar about arriving at dusk from many directions, circling and descending and then alighting on the cliff with skill that any aviator would envy.
